BUFFALO, N.Y. (June 12, 2013) – The Elmwood Village Association is pleased to announce that funding is now available for a new round of projects through the New York Main Street Grant currently being administered by the organization. Funding is available to property owners along Elmwood Avenue between Forest Avenue and West Delevan and may be used for building façade improvements and interior renovations of both commercial and residential spaces.

In 2011 the EVA was awarded $500,000 in New York Main Street funding via the New York State Office of Community Renewal. The program provides funds to stimulate reinvestment in properties located within mixed-use commercial districts in urban, small town, and rural areas of New York State. Matching funds are leveraged to help communities build the capacity required to grow their neighborhood retail districts.

A public meeting for property and business owners within the target zone will be held on Wednesday, June 19th at 10:00am at the Elmwood Village Association offices located at 1068 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14222. During this meeting staff will provide an overview of the types of projects that are eligible for funding (50% match required by property owner) and the application process.
