The City of Jasper FAÇADE GRANT PROGRAM in coordination with Heart of Jasper is a program intended to provide financial assistance for exterior building façade improvements in the Downtown and Riverfront Areas of Jasper, Indiana. The goal of the program is to stimulate retail growth and catalyze investment through enhanced aesthetics.
Grants will be awarded for 50% of the approved improvements. The minimum project plan must be over $5,000. The maximum match will be $10,000. In total, the program will provide a maximum of $50,000 in grant funding for the 2023 calendar year.
Grants will be awarded on a reimbursement basis, following an application procedure, design review, approval, and construction. Disbursement is contingent upon submission of cost invoices from contractors and tradesmen and inspection work by the Heart of Jasper Design Advisory Committee. Availability of funding will vary per calendar year.
The Facade Grant Program is now accepting applications for 2023. The deadline to apply is February 20th, 2023. Winners will be announced on March 3rd, 2023. The City of Jasper's Downtown Development Facade Guidelines can be found below.
