Body
Background:
MasterWing Creative Agency is requesting funding assistance under the Rent Subsidy Program for its business located at 275 N Swinton Avenue (CRA sub-area #2), for an amount not to exceed $4,158.

MasterWing Creative Agency is an award-winning business and event marketing agency co-founded and co-directed by Amanda MacMaster and Ethan DangerWing. This team has decades of experience delivering services like photography, design, public relations, web development, event planning and event management to many local businesses, entrepreneurs, and nonprofits.

MasterWing Creative Agency has secured a 2-year lease which commenced in May 2022. The agency will be in a 300 SF office space and has plans to maintain four (4) jobs. The lease specifies an annual rate of $12,600 ($1,050 monthly rent). Based on the terms of the lease and the current program guidelines, the applicant is eligible to receive assistance in an amount not to exceed $4,158 for a 12-month term. If approved, monthly payments will be made in equal monthly installments of $346.50.

A Rent Subsidy funding assistance award for MasterWing Creative Agency will help further the CRA mission by supporting new business activity within the CRA District as well as help reduce overhead expenses during the critical early stages of operation in a new location as the business seeks to grow its workforce and local clientele.
