The Town of Cheraw is offering businesses located within town limits a matching grant to assist in the enhancement of their building’s exterior.
Grant funds from the Façade Grant Program may be used for exterior signage, awnings, painting, and doors. Interior work and roofing are not allowed under the program’s guidelines. Grant awards must be matched dollar for dollar by the eligible business/property owner. The maximum grant for any one project will not exceed $1,000.00. Once the grant is awarded, the recipient must initiate façade work within 60 days or the grant will be presented to another recipient.
Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis by the town’s Board of Architectural Review. Priority consideration will be given to businesses that have not previously received a façade grant. Applications are available at the Cheraw Town Hall, 200 Market Street, during normal business hours. Work initiated before the board’s approval will not be eligible for the façade grant. For more information about this program, contact Mike Smith at 843-537-8400.
