Colville Together is excited to be able to offer the Façade & Building Improvement Grant to our downtown building owners for the second year.
Last year, we had an amazing response to our call for applications. There were twelve applications for the two grants that were available. There was a wide variety of applications ranging from updating awnings, new signage, roof repair, a mural, and other various projects. It was a difficult decision for the Colville Together Design Committee to select only two projects, but they were extremely excited to see the positive response from the downtown building owners.
The Façade & Building Improvement grant is offered by Colville Together with a desire to help improve and enhance the beauty of downtown Colville, preserve the historic nature of the streetscape, while making revitalization efforts affordable, creative, and community based. Each successful grant will be in the amount of $5,000 and awarded to property owners in the Colville Together focus area (3rd Ave to Birch Ave and Wynne St to Oak St). This year we will be focusing on projects that visually improve downtown.
Colville Together Design Committee administers the Façade & Building Improvement Grant Program and evaluates the applicant’s eligibility and need based on all the applicants. There are two grants available for 2022. Grants will be available in coming years as well.
Any building owner whose property falls within the Colville Together focus area (3rd Ave to Birch Ave and Wynne St to Oak St) can apply for the Façade & Building Improvement Grant. Applications and the program guidelines are available at https://www.colvilletogether.org/facade-building-improvement-grant/. Completed Applications are due on February 25th and the grant will be closed.
