The Downtown Lebanon façade improvement program began in 2019 to help encourage property owners and businesses to improve the exterior appearance of their buildings and storefronts. We are focused on providing financial incentives such as a matching grant, and design assistance to commercial properties located in our historic central business district.
This grant program will reimburse property and business owners a fifty percent match of project costs up to $5,000. For example, if a project costs a total of $10,000, $5,000 will be reimbursed. Any project exceeding $10,000 will only be eligible for a maximum reimbursement of $5,000. At the discretion of the Downtown Lebanon Façade Committee, projects with major impact may be eligible for additional funding. Façade improvement projects exceeding $25,000 in cost are not eligible for this program.
