The Iron Mountain Downtown Development Authority is able to contribute up to $4,000 each year toward improving the facade of one main street business. The town is ready to receive applications as of October 24.
The State Farm building downtown was a past recipient of the grant.
It is a grant based on a number of guidelines focusing on historic design.
Each year the DDA has only received one applicant.
The goal really is to get people to kind of leverage some investments. If they've thought about doing a project and they don't have all the money, they're, like, well it'd probably be a few thousand. I'd appreciate getting some assistance from the city, said City Planner Jonathan Ringel.
Iron Mountain will accept applications for the grant through November 29.
