Main Street Storefronts Grant

ReImagine North of Main is committed to helping start-up viable businesses on Fitchburg’s Main Street. The Storefront Fit-Out Grant was created to provide certain funds to eligible landlords to defray a portion of the costs incurred in the fit-out of new businesses in existing Main Street buildings, located between Day and Academy Street.

The Storefront Fit-Out grant will provide dollar-to-dollar match grants for renovations, improvements, and build outs for businesses in existing spaces in downtown. Landlord or tenant fit-out grant funding, which may cover up to 50% of the construction cost, will be considered for projects that have a total project cost of $10,000- $40,000 (meaning $5,000-$20,000 in grant award). For further eligibility information, see page two (Applicants and Eligibility).
