Louisiana Main Street Restoration Grants provide matching funds to encourage the revitalization of historic downtown commercial properties in designated Louisiana Main Street districts. The Louisiana Main Street Restoration Grants serve as an effort to promote community revitalization and stimulate economic growth and vitality, in addition to enriching cultural tourism. Community reinvestment utilizing historic preservation practices improves community economic health by fostering renewed interest in shopping, working, and living downtown.
Grant funding and the number of grants awarded are dependent on state budgets and the amount of funding appropriated by the legislature each year.
This is a reimbursement, matching funds grant!
Grant awards may range from $2,500 to $10,000. Grants require a dollar-for-dollar monetary match toward hard costs. In-kind contributions cannot be used to fulfill the match requirement.
