The Main Street Gainesville Grant Programs are funded and administered by the Main Street Gainesville Advisory Board. The Façade Grant and Event Grants are only available to Heritage Members of the Main Street Program.
Main Street Façade Grant
The purpose of this program is to maintain the integrity and beauty of the historic district's buildings.
Monies are available for exterior improvements only and may be applied to the front, side, or rear of the façade, provided the façade faces a public street or parking area.
A maximum of $1,500 per grant is available with Main Street Gainesville paying up to 50% of the invoiced price.
The purpose of this program is to stimulate community involvement in Downtown Gainesville. Grant funds are an incentive for groups and individuals to hold events in our historic downtown for the community at large.
Events must take place within the Main Street Gainesville boundaries, must be open to the public, and the profits must benefit downtown development or another community non-profit.
