LOVEVA Listing Grant

What is it?

We've taken our buy local program to the next level! 

Our partner, the Retail Alliance, created the LOVEVA app to support local businesses. The app allows shoppers to collect rewards at any participating local business. They can shop at one store and redeem their reward at another. 

When you get your business listed on the app, it gives you a loyalty program and includes you in a prime directory of local businesses. The Retail Alliance has an extensive marketing campaign for the LOVEVA app, and the app includes metrics to measure how effective it is for you, so it will help you with smarter marketing and increased impact. 

How much is it?

The listing fee is $145 per year. The Economic Development Authority is offering you a 50% grant for the first year. That means you only have to invest $72.50!

How does it work?

  1. Apply for your LOVEVA Listing with Retail Alliance.
  2. Apply for the York County LOVEVA Assistance Grant using this application form and include form W-9.
  3. Pay Retail Alliance in full for your LOVEVA listing and submit paid receipts to York County Economic Development so we can reimburse you.
