Main Street Port Clinton is pleased to announce that Downtown Improvement Grants are available for downtown businesses and building owners. The focus of the Downtown Improvement Grants is to provide financial support to downtown business owners and downtown property owners to improve their property, positively influence economic growth and enhance aesthetic appeal.
These grants are made possible because of the success of Main Street’s fundraisers, specifically the Walleye Festival. Last year, $15,000 was to four downtown business owners and building owners.
Main Street Port Clinton is striving to promote, preserve, and improve downtown historic Port Clinton as a vibrant center for businesses, entertainment and cultural activities for residents of the community and visitors to our area. Larry Hartlaub, Chair of the Economic Restructuring Committee and Main Street PC Board Member said, "I am really excited about the Downtown Improvement Grant. It is our organization's opportunity to put dollars into projects that reflect our mission."
Committee Member Lee Vivod said, “I feel the Downtown Improvement Grant program shows Main Street’s commitment to the community and offers us an opportunity to put the money that was earned downtown to work downtown with our business owners.”
