Redevelopment Incentive Grants
Louisiana Main Street Redevelopment Incentive Grants are intended to be a catalyst for the rehabilitation of the exteriors and interiors of historic commercial buildings located within the boundaries of designated Louisiana Main Street districts. Awarded on an annual basis, these reimbursable grants require that a matching amount be provided by the property owner or tenant. Proposed projects are reviewed by the local historic district commission prior to submission to Louisiana Main Street in order to ensure conformance with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation. For more information please contact your local Main Street director.
Louisiana Main to Main Grants
The intent of Louisiana Main to Main: A Cultural Road Show is to showcase the Louisiana Main Street communities and to foster economic development for Louisiana Main Street communities. Main to Main events celebrate the revitalization of Main Street districts, showcase and promote their merchants, Louisiana cultural assets, and the Louisiana cultural experience while stimulating cultural tourism within Louisiana and enhancing the image of the State.
Cultural assets are those elements that make a community unique, including the diverse historic and contemporary cultures of its people, architecture, and Louisiana-made art, food, music, etc. Applicants are encouraged to identify and include an array of diverse cultural assets that showcase and further develop their unique sense of place via Main to Main events.
These grants are awarded annually to local Main Street organizations to help support Main to Main events across Louisiana every November.
