A Refreshing Way to Enjoy Historic Downtown Monticello
Learn About Facade Improvement
Monticello Main Street and the City of Monticello have teamed up for the past 19 years to offer Facade Improvement Matching Grants to Monticello businesses. To date there have been over $1.1 million of improvement to building facades due to this program.
Monticello Main Street administers the program and offers design assistance, while the City of Monticello provides the funding. The purpose of the grants is to stimulate efforts to improve the street appearance of Monticello's commercial and business facades located in the historic downtown.
There is a $3,000 maximum per grant which must be matched by the applicants. The total grant amount for each fiscal year is limited, so the grants will be awarded on a first-come first-served basis and will be limited to one application per business per fiscal year. Following is the the formal description and application for the Facade Improvement Matching Grant Program and a link to the actual application form which you can print out.
