Façade Improvement Grants Available, Proposals due 4/29/13

The West Broadway Business and Area Coalition (WBC) is seeking proposals for the West Broadway Façade Improvement Program.  WBC will distribute matching grants for façade repairs and improvements to commercial spaces along the West Broadway Corridor.   The total available funding is $42,500, $7,500 per project.  This is a matching grant program; WBC will provide matching funds of up to $7,500 or 50 percent of the total project cost, whichever is lower.

In addition to Great Streets funds WBC has limited arts improvement funds available. If you are interested in artist designed and fabricated improvements there may be additional funds you can access.  Please ask WBC staff Shaina Brassard directly about this opportunity via e-mail (shaina@westbroadway.org) or phone (612.353.5178).
