Grant Dollars Still Available for Main Street Façade Improvements
A Façade Improvement Grant Program funded by Collinsville Downtown, Inc. and FHL Bank, Topeka, Kansas has provided financial assistance to seven downtown merchants for improvements and repairs made to their business façades. Three additional property owners are expected to receive grant monies in January 2010. There is nearly $4,000 in grant dollars available to eligible businesses.

For the purpose of this program, the term façade includes upper and lower
stories of the front of buildings/ businesses and includes windows, signage and awnings.

This matching Grant Fund for façade improvements has been implemented to:
Stimulate efforts to preserve historic integrity
Improve the appearance of Collinsville’s commercial business facades
Create a beautiful downtown business district that attracts visitors, stimulates business growth and creates jobs.

Collinsville Downtown, Inc. Design Committee administers the Façade Grant program and offers design assistance to grantees. The Collinsville Downtown, Inc. Board of Directors approves all grants.

Grants are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and reflect a 50% match of the completed project costs up to $2,000. For example, a project cost of $4,000 could result in an grant award of $2,000.

Below is a list of criteria for matching funds:

Buildings/Businesses must be located within the Main Street District. (One and one half block north and south of Main St., between 7th & 14th Street).
Grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be limited to one application per business address.
Businesses can apply for up to $2,000.00 maximum matching grant.
Grant dollars do not apply to any work started before approved “start date”.
Once approved, work must begin within 90 days from the awarding of the grant and must be completed within 6 months.
Improvements shall conform to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.
