IEDA and Main Street Iowa are pleased to once again offer bricks and mortar Challenge Grants to our communities.  $925,000 will be awarded for building rehabilitation projects for commercial projects within the designated Main Street Iowa districts.

Grants will range from $15,000 – $75,000 and require a dollar for dollar (1:1) CASH match.  The application process and project eligibility are very similar to previous grant rounds.  Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, building rehabilitation projects – interior and exterior, new construction and sensitive building additions.  Application Deadline September 15, 2016 by 5:00 PM.
