Grant funding is available for properties within the area of focus in the City’s adopted Downtown Vision Plan and for improvements that address one of four categories:

  • Façade improvements;
  • Outdoor seating;
  • Exterior artwork; and
  • Preservation of historic architecture and buildings.

The deadline for applications and supporting required documentation is February 15, 2022. Please contact the Mebane Downtown Coordinator at with any questions. For more information visit the Main Street Program webpage and download the program guidelines and application form here.
