HIGH POINT, N.C. — The City Project — a partnership between the City of High Point and private business owners — for the second time is offering assistance for small business owners who are looking to improve the exteriors of their buildings.

According to the High Point Enterprise, the City Project is now accepting applications for its facade grant program, which offers up to $5,000 for improvements like repairing windows, painting, signage, or repairing brick work.

The program has an available budget of $29,000 — $25,000 of which was allocated by the city.  An additional $4,000 was contributed by a public power cooperative.

In 2012, the City Project awarded eight grants that totaled $22,700.  Wendy Fuscoe, the Project’s executive director, tells the Enterprise most of the funds went toward painting, awnings, windows and signage.
