New DKI grant program provides cash assistance for projecting signage | Business
March 15, 2012, Kalamazoo, MI.: Downtown Kalamazoo Inc. (DKI) announces the availability of a new grant program that provides cash assistance to businesses within the Downtown Development Authority installing new signs and awnings. The grant is specific to projecting signs and awnings that advertise the name of the business.
The Signage Grant replaces the Design, Façade and Interior Rehabilitation Program grants for 2012. These programs may return in future years as the budget allows.
"Our focus on providing support for outdoor signage is based on an interest to convert much of the current signage to projecting units that are better suited for, and attention grabbing, in a pedestrian traffic environment," says DKI Business Recruitment & Retention Director, Rob Peterson. "Our purpose is to draw attention to the array of retail and restaurant businesses that exist downtown, which helps people to see that there is something available on nearly every block."
The Signage Grant pays for 50% of the cost of the sign, up to $750.
