The Isringhausen DRIVE Grant was created to help local entrepreneurs establish new businesses in downtown Springfield. The sizable cash grant helps the entrepreneurs cover remodeling, inventory, equipment, advertising, and/or other start-up related costs during their first year. 

Isringhausen has long been a cornerstone of the downtown Springfield community, and is excited to help a new generation of local entrepreneurs achieve their dreams.

The DRIVE Grant helps strengthen DSI’s commitment to increasing economic and cultural vitality in Springfield’s historic downtown.
