The CHARM Grant offers an opportunity for local businesses to make Grant County’s downtown spaces more “CHARMING”.
The CHARM Grant will target projects that are small yet potent. The Economic Growth Council believes that each project (no matter how small) has the potential to significantly impact the business and the community at large. Just the sight of visible improvement—fresh paint color, more light, repaired awnings or sidewalks—can bring new life to a community and give community members something to believe in.
About The CHARM Grant:
The CHARM Grant is a $1000 matching grant that will roll on a quarterly schedule: March, June, September, December. All local Grant County businesses are encouraged to apply, though businesses located in downtown areas as well as projects with higher visibility and community impact will be given priority.
