Las Vegas Businesses Receive Financial Assistance for Security Upgrades through the Business Security Grant Program

Businesses in Las Vegas awarded nearly $1 million for security upgrades; Applications for assistance still open

The City of Las Vegas is providing financial assistance to businesses looking to improve their security through the Business Security Grant Program. The program has already distributed nearly $1 million in funds and offers up to $10,000 to qualified businesses for security enhancements like lighting, cameras, and locks.

Tacotarian and Dig It Coffee are among the businesses that have benefited from this grant. Tacotarian used the funding to upgrade their camera system, which helped identify suspects during a recent break-in. Co-owner Carlos Corral emphasizes that a comprehensive security strategy goes beyond just surveillance. Meanwhile, Chops Barbershop and 18bin have also taken advantage of the funding to bolster their security measures with new locks, lighting, cameras and more.

There is still approximately $250,000 available in funding for businesses within Las Vegas city limits that meet the program’s criteria. To be eligible for the grant, businesses must be located in a qualified census tract, zoned for commercial or mixed-use, have 500 employees or less and have been operating since December 2019. Once approved, businesses will receive funds through a formal agreement process usually completed within 30 days.

The Business Security Grant Program has been an important resource for many local businesses looking to enhance their security and protect their assets. By investing in these security upgrades, businesses can deter criminal activities and create safer environments for their employees and customers.
