Facade Grant Program

The City of La Grande, through its Urban Renewal Agency, has funding available to assist Downtown building rehabilitation and renovation projects within the Urban Renewal district. It is the City’s intent to use Urban Renewal funds to match with private sector funding to incentivize and initiate a series of building renovations in the Downtown area. 

La Grande Main Street’s role is to manage the program, provide community input on grant applications, and act as a liaison between interested business or property owners and the City of La Grande.

The essential goals of this program are to:

  1. Improve the physical appearance and structural integrity of historic buildings in Downtown La Grande

  2. Restore the historic character of these buildings

  3. Make Downtown La Grande more attractive to local consumers and tourists

  4. Encourage additional business investment opportunities and improvements
