AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Some downtown businesses in Americus are getting grants to fix up their storefronts.
Four downtown businesses will each get a portion of $10,000 from the city's Facade Grant Program.
Kinnabrew company and the Amelia Cohen building are two of the businesses getting the funding to pay up to 50 percent of improvement projects.
"It's a great resource for downtown business owners and a great resource for downtown building owners and it's a great incentive to recruit new people into the downtown community," said Americus Main Street Director Patrick Kay.
Officials recently overhauled the program to include two grant cycles.
The deadline for the next cycle is April 1st.
