The National Main Street Center (NMSC) is pleased to offer the Historic Commercial District Revolving Fund, made possible through generous support from the 1772 Foundation, Inc. All Main Street America (MSA) and UrbanMain (UM) Coordinating Programs are invited to apply to partner with NMSC to bring this program to your city, region, or state. In 2019, the Historic Commercial District Revolving Fund will provide up to 15 small revolving loans to groups of business owners in up to three MSA or UM districts within the boundaries of one MSA or UM Coordinating Program. Business owners will use these loans to support highly visible improvements to buildings and storefronts. The program is intended to provide local Main Street programs with an additional “tool” in their economic vitality tool-box and help stimulate local economies using an innovative funding mechanism. Over the next three years, the revolving fund will provide 0% interest loans in two to three competitively selected Main Street communities.
The application to participate in Historic Commercial District Revolving Fund is open starting August 21, 2019! The deadline for applications is September 11, 2019.
