Application period open for Downtown Easton Facade Grant


The application period for facade grants for Downtown Easton property and business owners is open now through Friday, June 7.

The facade grants assist property and business owners in covering specific facade improvements, signage, and design costs. Eligible buildings must be located in the Main Street Revitalization Target Area, a 20-square block area designated from North Third Street to College Avenue. Exterior improvements considered for the grant include paint, windows, repointing, doors, maintenance, facade repair and restoration, lighting, and signage.

This is a competitive process, and applications will be evaluated by the EMSI Design Committee and volunteers.

All designs must adhere to the Easton Historic District Guidelines and recommendations of the Historic District Commission (HDC). A city building permit or zoning approval must be received, where needed, to receive funding.

The facade grant program offers a 50 percent match up to $5,000. Signage grants will be matched up to $1,500. Design professional fees are also eligible for grant funding as part of the total project.
