Grants for Storefront Improvement

The City of Washburn and the Washburn Area Economic Development Association (WAEDA) want to help new and expanding businesses and residents make this a great community.

We offer up to $5,000 to help with Store Front Improvements. This grant is a matching program, so for example, a $10,000 project could apply for $5,000 from WAEDA and the owner would pay $5,000.

The goal of this program is to improve the image and appearance of the shopping districts along Main Street and Highway 83.

Eligible projects must be within the Washburn community and be directly related to a business or future business. Only physical improvement projects will be eligible. Farm, ranch and home-based business projects do not qualify. Following grant application and approval, projects may be started, no prior projects will be considered. Grant applications can be requested fromĀ tlarsen@waedand.com.
