Downtown Grant Program

The Downtown Grant Program has been developed to provide resources to stimulate investment and economic development through projects that align with the greater Downtown Revitalization Initiative vision.

This flexible funding mechanism enables property and businesses owners to make major renovations and restorations to existing retail, commercial, and residential properties Downtown. It strives to increase quality, year-round occupied housing stock by creating or converting vacant or underutilized upper story space into new residential units. Ultimately, a population of people living Downtown will help foster the revitalization of Downtown through increased spending that will come from increased foot-traffic and proximity to Downtown businesses.

All assistance provided by the DGP will be in the form of reimbursable grants.

Join us at our Kick-Off Meeting on Wednesday, November 8th for more details!
