Facade Grants

Sterling Main Street’s Facade Grant Program was developed to encourage improvement and investment to the overall revitalization of the Downtown Business District of Sterling.  This program provides grant funds for exterior improvements to a property owner’s or tenant’s commercial building that will be aesthetically pleasing and complementary to local design guidelines.  The program is funded by Sterling Today, Inc., and administered by Sterling Main Street. Shown above is Mead’s Bike Shop which was restored in 2013.

The purpose of the program is to provide financial incentive to downtown business and property owners to upgrade the exterior of their building. The program is designed to retain and attract businesses, strengthen the Downtown Business District, increase utilization of downtown buildings, restore economic vitality and enhance property values.                       

The Facade Grant Program is available to all commercial properties located within the downtown business district as defined by the zoning code of the City of Sterling.

Since the program’s inception in 2009, over $350,000 has been awarded in grants for the revitalization of our downtown.  For additional information on our Facade Grant Program or to find out if your property is eligible, please review the Program Guidelines below or Contact Us.
