The Kissimmee City Commission approved Operation Business Boost during the Commission meeting, held on Tuesday, October 5, 2021.  The City is investing over half a million dollars to support its business community with this program.

Operation Business Boost is a stackable business assistance and growth program to help further entrepreneurs recover from the economic impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Businesses will soon have easy access to grants, personalized business coaching, technical business support services and partnership with CareerSource Central Florida, employee training, and salary subsidies.

As part of the grant component, businesses will be eligible to receive funds for any business burden. Additionally, companies within the City’s Community Redevelopment Agency’s (CRA) districts can receive assistance under the new commercial property improvements matching grant or fee waivers for eligible projects under the new Pioneer Project Incentive.

The City will also continue to sponsor businesses to participate in the GrowthWheel© program, which provides customized business coaching for 6-months.  To learn more, visit
