Downtown Facade Grant Funds Available

Jan 21, 2021 | ,

(KVHT) – Yankton City officials want local businesses to know that applications for 2021 grant funds to improve facades in the Meridian District are now available. The program provides grants at a 50% or more match of private funds. They say a total of $30,000 in grants are now available. While historic restoration projects will be given preference, officials say new-non-historic façade enhancements are also eligible. For each project, there is a set of repair and upgrade guidelines which must occur on the portions of the buildings visible to the public. Applicants need to complete a two-page application as well as include a proposed budget and basic drawing or illustration of the project. Applications will be reviewed by a committee representing a cross section of the downtown community, business owners, historical preservation, as well as elected officials and city staff. Following the review process applications recommended for funding will be submitted to the City Commission. Application deadline is March 15th, with additional applications being accepted as long as grant funds remain available.
