The City Commission and Main Street Marianna would like to announce the opening of the 2019-2020 Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) Improvement Grant Program. The funds are available to businesses within the CRA zoned district.
The maximum grant amount shall not exceed $7,500, or fifty percent (50%) of the improvement costs, whichever is less, with a fifty percent (50%) match required from each applicant. This grant covers exterior improvements only such as awnings, windows, doors, and brick and mortar projects.
There is also a demolition portion of this grant. The demolition grant shall not exceed $3,250, or fifty percent (50%) of the demolition costs, whichever is less, with a fifty percent match required from each applicant. This grant is to help remove damaged parts of the building in respect to the exterior.
An application and project plans must be submitted to the Main Street Board for approval prior to the project being started to be eligible for grant money upon project completion. Once an approved project is completed, then grant money will be distributed on a “first come, first serve” basis. Grant money is limited.
