Grants available for projects

The downtown area is the most visible indicator of a community’s economic and social health and often the first place people think of or want to see when visiting a community.

It can either be an asset or a liability in efforts to recruit new residents, businesses, industry and tourism to the community, said Chamber Services Coordinator Katy Korkos.

In an effort to improve the appearance of the local downtown commercial district, the Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation, through its Los Alamos MainStreet Program, is seeking applications for grants for curb appeal improvements. Any downtown business or organization may apply for grant funding.

“I have the grant applications in my office. Anyone interested in applying is welcome to stop by and pick up an application,” Korkos said.

Businesses and organizations that lease or own properties in the downtown are eligible to apply, she said.

Applicants may request up to $500 in grant funding for one curb appeal project.

Eligible projects are those that address curb appeal improvements such as signage, landscaping, sidewalk or façade improvements.

A minimum dollar-for-dollar match by the applicant is required.
