Bringing History Back to Downtown Storefronts
Applications being accepted now! No deadline – see details below:
The Façade Incentive Grant Program is developed by the Design Committee of Wayne Main Street (WMS).
The grant program was created to encourage private investment in historic facades by providing financial incentives. Historically sensitive rehabilitation and dramatic improvement of facades in downtown Wayne will encourage good design that will serve as quality examples to preserve the architectural character that is distinctive to Wayne. By improving the appearance of the building facades, the Program helps to improve the economic viability of the downtown.
Source of Funding
This program is funded by Wayne Main Street. The number of projects receiving grants in a fiscal year is based on program budget, with a new funding cycle beginning January 1. Grants are awarded on a first-approved, first-funded basis.
Program Target Area
The target area for the Wayne Main Street Façade Incentive Grant Program is the Wayne Main Street downtown district. (See Exhibit A)
