DDBA Gifting Stimulus Program Update: Final Calculations Show Infusion of Over $200,000 Into Downtown Businesses!

Due to stimulus funds being exhausted, the DDBA Gifting Stimulus Program has closed.

TO OUR COMMUNITY: We are absolutely amazed by the generosity of OUR community! We originally opened the portal to our Gifting Stimulus Program on the afternoon of Wednesday, April 22nd with a goal of infusing $100,000 into our struggling but resilient downtown businesses. After roughly 50 hours, our community and those with connections to it, in conjunction with the DDBA & program sponsors, contributed over $150,000!

We put a “pause” on the program on April 25th as the initial stimulus funds were exhausted, but reopened on Friday, May 8th thanks to additional sponsorship. In less than 4 hours, the additional stimulus funds were gone and over $50,000 more was infused into our downtown businesses!

Total # of Businesses Benefited = 125
Total # of Businesses Hitting Stimulus Cap = 73
(full list of businesses are at the bottom of this page)


Please continue to support our wonderful downtown businesses as we work through the Roadmap to Recovery process and the phases of reopening as many doors as we can in a safe and legal fashion. Visit our COVID-19 Special Accommodations Business Listing for more information on what our businesses are doing at this time to serve you.

TO OUR PARTICIPATING BUSINESSES: You should have received an email (at the address used for program registration) with next steps and payment information. If you did not receive an email from us, please check your spam and promotions filters. If you still cannot locate it, email us at info@davisdowntown.com immediately for assistance.

TO GIFT CARD/CERTIFICATE CUSTOMERS: The businesses you purchased your gift card(s)/certificates(s) from will be in contact with you directly about fulfillment of those items.

We can’t thank the City of Davis, Greiner Heating Air & Solar, Tandem Properties, Bill & Nancy Roe, the Chen Building, and some fine citizens enough by stepping forward and adding additional money into our sponsorship of this program, as well as their steadfast support of the cultural and entertainment heart of our city.

Again, thanks to EVERYONE who has supported local businesses that make OUR downtown community so vibrant! We are all in this together and can’t wait to see your faces downtown again soon!
