Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance will begin accepting applications for the David F Denman Façade Enhancement Grant program in April 2018. We have $10,000 to grant this year thanks to the City of Harrisonburg’s Economic Development Dept. and the Friendly City Fortune. This is a 50/50 matching grant that can be applied toward a building improvement, landscaping, or sign project in our Main Street revitalization district. Grant amounts will not exceed $5,000.
All applicants must discuss their project idea with HDR staff and/or Design Committee volunteers before submitting their application. Once applications are received, they will be reviewed by HDR volunteers and staff who are on the Façade Grant Subcommittee.The number of grants allocated and the size of each award will be determined by the quality and potential impact of all proposed projects. We are seeking to award grants that will have a meaningful economic impact on the district. Due to the amount of interest, we expect that this will be a competitive grant round and do not anticipate being able to award a grant to each applicant.
Grant applications are coming soon!
