Facade Improvement Program
Façade Improvement Program
The facade improvement program is designed to encourage property owners to make improvements to their storefronts that enhance the historic nature of downtown Menasha. The facade program is overseen by the city's Landmarks Commission, and is available to businesses within the city's Historic Districts (see map). The program provides grants and loans.
Grants. Facade Improvement grants are limited to a maximum of $2,500 per facade, with a 50% match required.
Loans. Facade Improvement loans are limited to $10,000 per facade, with an interest rate of 4%, and a term of 1 year for each $1,000 borrowed (for example, a $5,000 loan would have a 5 year term).
Availability of funds for the facade program changes from time to time. To inquire about the availability of funding and determine the eligibilty of your project, please contact Community Development Department staff at 920-967-3650.
