Get up to $10,000 to Improve Your Downtown Property with the
MainStreet Cleveland Property Enhancement Grant!

The deadline for applications has past. Awards are scheduled to be announced August 15, 2017.

MainStreet Cleveland is excited to announce the MainStreet Property Enhancement Grant available to property owners and tenants located within the Mainstreet designated area. This is the first time MainStreet Cleveland has offered micro grants and the organization is proud to provide support to building owners and tenants as part of our ongoing revitalization efforts. The board of directors has allocated $50,000 for this program.

The MainStreet Cleveland Property Enhancement Grant seeks to encourage building owners and tenants to invest in properties located within the MainStreet Cleveland footprint by financially assisting with building needs that serve an appropriate public purpose and benefit. Acceptable proposals include exterior building renovations or other projects that contribute to public safety. The intention is to stimulate building improvements while being mindful of the historical significance and uniqueness of this district. Replacing awnings, damaged, boarded or bricked-up windows, improving main and upper level storefronts, repainting or removing paint from buildings that have been previously painted are all considered to be important priorities. Positive building appearance has been proven to increase property values, improve the marketability of space within the building and attract new businesses, residents and visitors to an area.

A grant of pool of $50,000 has been established with a maximum per grantee of $10,000. The MainStreet Cleveland Property Enhancement Grant is a reimbursement program and requires that the building owner or tenant contribute a matching amount. Description and application is attached. Deadline for the grant is July 31, 2017 with grantee awards announced on August 15, 2017.
