Gritty to Pretty
The Gritty to Pretty Program encourages commercial building owners in Amherst to invest in beautification and streetscaping by providing matching grants to cover a portion of renovation costs. The program is delivered as a partnership between the Town of Amherst and the Amherst & Area Chamber of Commerce. Funding is allocated on a case-by-case basis. The program will consider up to 50% of eligible costs, to a maximum of $5,000.
Eligible improvements may include signage, beautification fixtures such as baskets, benches, bike racks and planters, lighting, repair or reconstruction of building facade, windows, and doors. All projects must be complete by March 31. For more information, and to apply, call 902-667-8186, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
