Hyannis, MA- The Hyannis Main Street Business Improvement District (BID) announces awards totaling $115,000 to Downtown Hyannis small businesses for a new façade improvement grant program.

Elizabeth Wurfbain, Executive Director of the BID, stated “We knew this grant program would be a knockout of the park as we received a record number of applications, 37, and were thankfully able to fund 21 grants. Through additional matching funds from participating businesses, our budget is supporting about $400,000 in façade improvements of private/public monies this spring in the center of our downtown. Our hope is to turn this into an ongoing program that would support future initiatives in the area.”

This program was made possible through funding from MassDevelopment’s Transformative Development Initiative (TDI), and from a Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce REDO Grant via the Mass Office of Business Development. The BID worked collaboratively with the Town of Barnstable’s Planning and Development Department and Love Live Local to plan and manage the grant program. Winners are listed below:
