PORT CLINTON – The Board of Directors for Main Street Port Clinton recently awarded grants to two downtown businesses – $4,500 to McCarthy’s and $2,500 to Ala Carte Café – as part of its Downtown Improvement Grant Program.


This grant is a project of Main Street Port Clinton’s Economic Development Committee with the focus to provide financial support to downtown business owners and downtown property owners to improve their property, positively influence economic growth and enhance aesthetic appeal. 

Since 2013 Main Street Port Clinton has awarded $90,000 in grants; all made possible because of the Walleye Festival. The next Downtown Improvement Grant funding cycle will be available in November.  For more information, contact our Main Street Office at 419-734-5503.
