We Need Your Vote! Help Sloopin Receive a $250K Grant

Mission Main Street GrantsWe at Sloopin are always looking for ways to improve our site and provide you with a better experience.

That's why we're asking you to do us a favor and vote for Sloopin to get a $250K grant from Chase (click here or click the vote now banner on the right).

Chase is partnering with Google to provide twelve $250K grants to small businesses that are helping their communities.

While there are undoubtedly thousands of entries and us winning is a long shot...we figure why not give it a shot.

The grant program is a three step process (to read more click here), but to sum it up:

  1. Register by October 31st - DONE
  2. Receive 250 votes by November 15th to be entered into the final round - THIS IS WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP (click here to vote)
  3. Grants Awarded - Selected Panelists - January 2014

If we receive the grant we plan to do many things, but here are a couple things we've identified:
  • Provide better content
  • Provide more content
  • Better utilize emerging technology
  • Engage with more local businesses
  • Engage with more local news operations
  • Bolster/create local events for community
  • Improve functionality of our website

As always Sloopin wouldn't exist without you!  Thanks for your loyalty, contributions and passion towards our site and our neighborhood.

We thank you for your consideration and vote in advance!

The Sloopin Crew
