Downtown Businesses Could Get A Facelift Thanks To Stellar Grant

Last updated on Wednesday, October 9, 2013

(BEDFORD) - Downtown Bedford business and building owners could see their buildings get a facelift thanks to the Stellar Grant.

Business and building owners are asked to attend a Stellar facade informational meeting on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. in the Bedford Chamber of Commerce Meeting Room.

Earlier this year, the City of Bedford was designated as a Stellar Community by the State of Indiana.

Bedford's Stellar Community application focused on revitalizing its downtown. As a downtown business/building owner, your building may be eligible to participate in the Stellar Community Facade project and receive grant funding (80/20 match) to renovate your building's exterior facade.

Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) will have a staff person available to discuss BRI/Indiana Main Street, as well as Trena Carter, the Stellar Facade OCRA Program Grant Administrator.

Please mark your calendar and plan to attend.

If you have any questions contact Marla Jones at 812-279-6555.
