The Facade Imrpovement Grant was developed to provide an incentive to downtown businesses and property owners for making easy, affordable, but noticable changes to the outside of their buildings.
The funds may be used for improvements that comply with the Historic downtown guidelines. These guidelines recommended improvements or changes that are consistent within the historical context of the building.
The maximum amount of this grant is 1/3 of the cost of the improvement or $500.00 (whichever is less).
Types of improvements that the funds may be used for include:
exterior paint – awnings – signs – complete facade
