Grants will provide a dollar-for-dollar match of business or property owner project funding up to a maximum of $1,000 per project for facade improvements and $500 per project for signs and signage. Only one grant may be applied per assessed address per year.
A limited amount of funding is available under this program and the Design Review Committee reserves the right to make awards of limited funds based on the relative merits and positive impacts of the projects. If several projects are under consideration at one time, grant applications will be considered in order that they are received in the Downtown Association office.
Building owners or their tenants may apply. Limited design assistance is available from the State Main Street office. Design reference materials--including text and slide presentations--are also available in the Downtown association office for your review. Applicants are encouraged to consult with the Downtown Association Board as their designs are developed. The Black River Falls Downtown Association will not use race, sex, age, or religion as grounds for refusing a grant to an eligible applicant.
