PORT CLINTON – Downtown Improvement Grant applications are now available through Main Street Port Clinton. The focus of the Downtown Improvement Grant is to provide financial support to downtown business owners and downtown property owners to improve their property, positively influence economic growth and enhance aesthetic appeal.

These grants are made possible because of the success of Main Street’s fundraisers, specifically the Walleye Festival. Since 2013, $125,000 has been awarded to downtown property owners and business owners.

Main Street Port Clinton is striving to promote, preserve and improve downtown historic Port Clinton as a vibrant center for businesses, entertainment and cultural activities for residents of the community and visitors to our area. For information about the Downtown Improvement Grant, contact the Main Street Port Clinton office at 419-734-5503 or pick up grant applications at 110 Madison St. Deadline to apply is Aug. 27.
