MainStreet Grants Available For Curb Appeal and Promotions

MainStreet News:

Los Alamos MainStreet is offering matching grants to downtown business or organizations that plan to improve their curb appeal. A second grant is offered to help with event advertising or business promotions. With spring just around the corner, now is the time to take advantage of these grants.

Curb Appeal Grants of up to $500 are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Eligible projects will address curb appeal improvements such as signage, landscaping, or façade improvements. The application materials include a curb appeal self-assessment, a resource listing, and a guide to container planting in Los Alamos County developed by the local New Mexico State University extension office.

Small Promotions Grants of up to $1,000 are available for advertising and marketing costs that promote downtown events or business promotions. All applications should be turned in prior to production so the Los Alamos MainStreet logo can be used in marketing.

Funds are limited so now is the time to apply. Find application instructions and forms online at
