Mission Main Street Grants

Open: August 16, 2018  •  Close: February 15, 2019  •  Awarded: March 14, 2019

Studies show that improving main streets can drive job creation and promote tourism—two critical economic growth components. With Mission Main Street Grants, launched in 2013, ECGRA targets revitalization along countywide commercial corridors that are home to small businesses, historic structures, and special events.

Municipalities and nonprofit organizations with plans to renew historic commercial corridors can apply for Mission Main Street Grants. A 1:1 cash match is required for all applicants. Projects may include overhauled streetscapes, revamped landscapes, and restored façades. See current grant guidelines for further details.

Up to $10,000 awarded per planning grant; up to $250,000 per implementation grant; a maximum of $2,500,000 to be granted in the 2018 - 2021 funding cycle.

Requirements:

  • A 501c3, municipality, or authority
  • Headquartered in Erie County
  • A 1-to-1 cash match
