Main Street programs have demonstrated time and time again over this past year how essential they are to the health and vitality of their local communities. You’ve not only supported your small businesses, but also developed innovative strategies to leverage local investment, establish new partnerships, and cultivate entrepreneurship.

The road ahead remains unknown and resources continue to be scarce. The coming year may require the most of us yet. But Main Streets are up to the task.

To support your revitalization efforts, National Main Street Center announces the Main Street Resiliency Grant Program made available exclusively to Main Street America member communities. This grant program will provide ten members of the Main Street America Network $8,500 each to fund innovative revitalization efforts to address the current and/or legacy impacts of COVID-19. This grant program is available only to Accredited Main Street America programs and state, county and city Main Street America Coordinating Programs.

This Main Street Resiliency Grant Program seeks to uplift and support approaches and creative techniques that will help Main Streets navigate the impacts of the pandemic and help position them for a full recovery. Recipients will serve as a model and source of inspiration for Main Street programs across the country as we enter the next phase of recovery.

To be eligible, entrants must complete the entire application and review the program terms and conditions. We are taking applications through Friday, February 19, 2021.
