Downtown Facade Improvement Grant

September 20, 2013 at 4:40 PM


The City of Roseburg is now accepting grant applications for façade improvements of commercial buildings in the Urban Renewal portion of the Downtown Historic District. The grant program is intended to revitalize the City’s downtown core, reduce blight, and spur economic growth while retaining the historic character of the district.

The grants are made available through the Roseburg Urban Renewal Fund on a reimbursement basis paid at the time of project completion. Funds may be awarded for up to 33% of the total project; minimum project total shall be $3,030 to meet the minimum reimbursement amount of $1,000. Maximum reimbursement is capped at $10,000. There is no cost for the grant application; however, certain projects may require a $104 fee for historic site plan review.

 All grant applications shall be submitted to the Community Development Department on the third floor of City Hall, 900 SE Douglas Avenue. Qualifying projects will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis as funding allows. If awarded, the recipient has until June 30, 2014 to complete the work and submit the required documentation. Grant application and details are available on the City of Roseburg’s website:
