2021 BBIP Grant for Downtown Buildings and Businesses Now Open

The Jamestown Renaissance Corporation is excited to announce the opening of its 2021 Building and Business Improvement Program. Downtown building and business owners have until April 5th, 2021, to apply to receive matching support towards investments related to improving any meaningful aspect of their building or business.

“One of our community’s most vital assets is our density of historic architecture that is our downtown core.” illustrates Frank Besse, JRC’s Urban Core Director. “This program aligns the priority of protecting that asset with the critical work of making sure our downtown property and business owners have the support they need to invest in their assets.” Besse continues, “This program is for the long-time small business or building owner as well as someone who is looking to make downtown their new home for investment. We are strictly looking for the best opportunities to make investments that will help our downtown reach its great potential.”

Anyone interested in applying for this program is encouraged to contact JRC’s Urban Core Director, Frank Besse, at frank[at]jamestownrenaissance.org or 716-708-6761.
