With COVID-19 continuing to impact our local businesses and residents, it is as important now to 'shop local' than it has ever been. The Town is developing the Johnstown Cash program (to launch in April) to encourage residents to support local businesses - and neighbors - and keep Johnstown great. 

Johnstown Cash gift certificates will be mailed to residents (one per household) the first week of April. Each gift certificate will be worth $20 and will be redeemable at select participating businesses from April 2021 through December 31, 2021.

In the next few weeks, the program will officially launch and more information about Johnstown Cash redemption and the participating businesses will be available here.

  • In order to participate in the program, businesses must meet eligibility requirements and sign up for the John$town Ca$h Gift Certificate Portal.
  • Businesses will be reimbursed 100% of the face value of each John$town Ca$h certificate between 15 - 30 days from the date the certificate is redeemed at your location.
