Downtown Building Rehab Program Available!

A deadline for applying for grants from a state program to promote the redevelopment, rehabilitation or deconstruction of downtown buildings is just a little more than two weeks away.

Winneshiek County Development Executive Director Stephanie Fromm says she’s seeking applications for the “Community Catalyst Business Remediation Program.”  The program awards grants up to  $100,000.  Matching funds from building owners are not required, but strongly encouraged.

Strong applications will show the potential of creating economic growth in the community; improve appearances and safety of buildings; make use of underutilized property, exhibit appropriate design standards; and be well-funded.

To apply, or for more information,  call (563) 382-6061 or e-mail  Pre-applications must be submitted by Friday, December 22nd.
