Main Street Grant – Pre Application
Oregon Frontier Chamber of Commerce Main Street Revitalization Grant Pre-Application 2023
We are very excited to announce that the Oregon Frontier Chamber of Commerce through a partnership with Oregon Main Street is making available the opportunity of a Revitalization Grant to our members!
The Oregon Main Street Revitalization Grant is a competitive grant offered by the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) for up to $200,000 in matching funds for downtown revitalization efforts in communities participating in the Oregon Main Street Network such your Oregon Frontier Chamber of Commerce. Matching funds of at least 30% of the award is required. Matching funds can be in the form of cash, in-kind donations, and/or volunteer time.
The Revitalization Grant funds may be used to acquire, rehabilitate, and construct buildings on properties. Funded projects must facilitate community revitalization that will lead to private investment, job creation or retention, establishing or expanding viable businesses, or creating a stronger tax base. Projects may include façade improvement, accessibility enhancement, basic utilities, second floor renovations and more.
The Revitalization Grant applications must be submitted by the Oregon Frontier Chamber of Commerce on the member’s behalf. Only one applicant or project will be submitted for each participating community (Arlington, Condon, Fossil, Mitchell, Moro, Rufus, Spray, Wasco).
The Oregon Frontier Chamber of Commerce Main Street Committee will be selecting the project that fits the goals and mission of the city, as outlined in the partnership agreement and the project that is properly prepared for the Oregon Main Street application process. To do this, we are requiring a "pre-application." Pre-applications will be reviewed with follow up questions made by the Oregon Frontier Chamber of Commerce Main Street selection committee to make our final project selection. Once a project is selected, we will work together to complete the official grant application.
