Abbeville Main Street looking for grant applicants

Posted: Updated:

If you own property in downtown Abbeville, you may be eligible for a restoration grant. 

The Abbeville Main Street program is looking for applications from people who own commercial buildings or businesses downtown. 

According to program manager Charlene Beckett, the deadline to apply is November 17. 

The Louisiana Main Street program offers two sizes of grants: a $10,000 grant and a $2,500 grant. They can be applied to interior or exterior rehabilitation of properties. All work must be completed by May 31, 2018 to be eligible for reimbursement under the grants. 

To be eligible for Main Street Restoration Grant funds, a building must be located within the downtown Main Street district, be used for commercial purposes, and be at least 50 years old. Any work submitted for reimbursement must be approved by both the local historical commission and the state Main Street Office. The work also must meet requirements set in the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation. 

For more information or to apply, call Beckett at 337-652-2239.
