The Main Street Program has an incentive for Halsell Street Merchants who are interested in updating the facade of their building. Our downtown buildings are more than just bricks and mortar, they are the structures at the very heart of our community. The premise of the Main Street program is economic revitalization through architectural preservation. To support this mission, Bridgeport Main Street is proud to offer a comprehensive and generous facade improvement incentive program for businesses and property owners within the Main Street district (Halsell Street from US 114 to 13th Street.)
This is a 50/50 matching fund grant of up to $5,000 and we encourage business owners to apply.
These programs are supported by hotel occupancy tax funds. All building improvements must adhere to Bridgeport Main Street design guidelines and be pre-approved by the Bridgeport Main Street Design Committee and final approval by Bridgeport City Council.
Please see the Façade Grant Application for more details and guidelines. For more questions please contact Krystal Smith, Main Street Manager at 940-683-3411 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
