Façade Improvement and Other Grants

Downtown Façade Improvement Grant Program
In order to revitalize the downtown, attract new businesses, increase property values, and restore Stevens Point's downtown character, the City has developed a Downtown Façade Improvement Grant Program. This program allows owners and/or tenants of existing buildings within the Tax Increment Finance District VI to apply for 40% matching funds of total costs for eligible improvements. See the full Program Description for more information on eligible properties, eligible improvements, award reimbursement, and application instructions.
