The city of York has been awarded Grant Funds for Downtown Revitalization (DTR). Awarded amounts may be anywhere from $1,000 – $50,000. This grant is fashioned as a 5 year forgivable loan and does require a 25% match from the property owner. Projects with focus on façade improvements or code upgrades may be eligible. The funded project(s) MUST be completed by September 1, 2019 to allow enough time for proper inspections before the Department of Economic Development can release the funds to close the project. Physical applications may be picked up at the Chamber Office (603 N Lincoln Ave) or the City Offices (100 E 4th Street). Applicants may use the link below to apply as well. You will need to provide documents with the application and those may be uploaded with the on-line application. Upon receipt of the application, Chamber Staff will forward those to the DTR committee for review and the applicant will receive written notification from the City of York if their project was selected to be funded.
Please review the Project Guidelines (DTR Program Guidelines) prior to completing the application. If you have questions, please feel free to contact our office at 402-362-5531 to visit with Rhonda Veleba or Madonna Mogul. We will be happy to contact our various resources on your behalf.
