Apply: Apply for a Downtown Rosemount Business Façade Grant (opens October 1, 2021)
Staff Contact: Eric Van Oss, Economic Development Coordinator
The Rosemount Port Authority is launching a one-year pilot program to help assist building owners with improvements to façade and landscaping in Downtown Rosemount. Strategic planning efforts have identified downtown revitalization as one of several important objectives, and the grant program aims to provide a financial incentive to help stimulate private investment and support increased property values.
Beginning on October 1, the city plans to offer downtown grants totaling up to $20,000 annually. Grant funds must be matched 1:1 with private dollars. Grant amounts may range from $1,000 to $5,000 per property and can be used for improvements to building exteriors, window and door replacement or repair, awnings, signs, exterior steps or entrances, landscaping, lighting and other permanent improvements. Grants will be awarded on a first come, first served basis.
The Rosemount Port Authority is funding this one-year pilot program and will review the program outcomes before adjusting available funds or grant requirements for future years.
