Grants of up to $2,000 to Tennessee property owners and tenants in eligible regions for exterior property improvements. Funding is intended to stimulate building improvements while being mindful of the historical significance and uniqueness of the district. Projects should benefit the Fayetteville Main Street District.

Replacing awnings, damaged, boarded or bricked-up windows, improving main and upper level storefronts, repainting or removing paint from buildings that have been previously painted are all considered to be important priorities. Positive building appearance has been proven to increase property values, improve the marketability of space within the building and attract new businesses, residents and visitors to an area.

Building improvements shall reflect the architectural integrity of the entire building and the neighboring traditional street scape. The sides of buildings (secondary facades) which are highly visible from nearby streets or public parking areas may be included in and are encouraged to be part of the building improvements. Participants are encouraged to follow the standards set forth in the Secretary of the Interiors Standards for Rehabilitating Historic buildings where applicable.

Exterior building improvements may consist of the following: awnings; painting (excluding previously unpainted masonry unless approved by the grant committee); paint removal (sandblasting is not acceptable); storefront renovations; window repair/replacement; door repair/replacement; signage, exterior lighting; masonry repair/tuck pointing; cornice repair/replacement; gutter and downspout repair/replacement; and parapet repairs. Other improvements may be considered upon request. Grant funds may be used for professional and permit fees.
