To assist our small businesses during these extraordinary times, the Village of Hanover Park has created a COVID-19 Business Assistance Program to help our small businesses.
On May 27, 2020, the Village Hosted a Town Hall to present the program and answer questions. A recording is available on the Village’s YouTube channel.
The Business Assistance Program has three components:
EXPANDED OUTDOOR DINING
Due to the social distancing requirements necessary to protect people from the COVID-19 pandemic, Hanover Park has expanded outdoor seating options to include areas such as parking lots. Please see Food-Related Business Resources for more information, including detailed requirements and application information.
WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT AND ONLINE MARKETING
An online presence is essential, as businesses have learned during the Shelter-in-Place order. The Village wants to make sure that all of our businesses, regardless of how small, are able to take advantage of a digital presence. Businesses need to claim their Google profiles and have searchable landing pages to be visible. At no cost to Hanover Park businesses, the Village will hire a consultant to build a landing page or basic website and claim a Google space in order to help you boost your on-line presence. Apply online! Participating businesses will complete an "In-take Form" providing details on the business which will be used to create the on-line presence. Please contact Community and Economic Development at (630) 823-5783 or CDevelopment@hpil.org if you have any questions.
FREE LOGO BRANDED SIGNAGE
The Village will provide free banners (3’ X 8’) and sandwich board signs (double sided) with Hanover Park and Restaurant logos. Signs will be provided by ER2 Image Group, a Hanover Park based graphics company. Businesses can include a business name, logo, hours, and carryout information. Other information is subject to Village review. Apply online! Please contact Community and Economic Development at (630) 823-5783 or CDevelopment@hpil.org if you have any questions.
