CHESTERTON – The Duneland Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Duneland Economic Development Company (DEDC), has released applications for the 2014 Façade Grant Program. All interested commercial building owners are encouraged to submit applications to the Chamber office at 220 Broadway in Chesterton by 4:00 pm on April 25, 2014.

Funded by the DEDC, the Façade Grant Program fosters and funds projects that will improve the appearance of commercial buildings in the main corridors of Duneland communities. It is the DEDC’s philosophy that funding such projects will draw and increase the number of visitors to downtown areas and enhance the quality of life for local residents.

The program requires that a minimum 20% of the project be paid for by the applicant, and it is anticipated that DEDC awards will range from $1,000 to $5,000, those grant amounts are subject to change based on the quality of proposed projects. Grants may be used only for expenses reasonably associated with the exterior rehabilitation of a property, and all building permits must be obtained prior to commencing the project. Applicants should submit detailed budgets which demonstrate good planning and aesthetic cooperation with neighboring businesses.

For more information or to request an application, please call the Chamber office at (219) 926-5513, email info@dunelandchamber.org or visit http://bit.ly/2014FacadeGrantApp.
