Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance has awarded a fifth round of Façade Enhancement Grants to businesses and property owners within the downtown Harrisonburg district.
Thanks to a collaborative effort between the City of Harrisonburg’s Department of Economic Development, HDR’s Economic Development Committee, and HDR’s Design Committee, the $19,150 will benefit seven recipients with individual award amounts ranging from $150 to $6,000. The total cost of the projects exceeds $100,000.
“HDR has successfully completed 5 rounds of façade enhancement grants. We have found that these grant funds leverage significant private investment and create dramatic visual impact downtown,” says Brian Shull, Chair of HDR’s Economic Development Committee and the Economic Development Director for the City of Harrisonburg.
