Grow Together

The mission of Santa Barbara Better Together is to provide direct and meaningful resources to support a vibrant local economy. By supporting economic initiatives in our region, we can make a positive impact on the quality of life of those who live in, work in and travel to Santa Barbara.

While our initial grant program for small business continues, the new Santa Barbara Better Together Economic Development group is using a data-driven approach to help stimulate local economic investment, retain and support unique local businesses, diversify business ownership in the region, incubate new organizations, and foster local job creation through entrepreneurship.
