Façade Improvement Incentive Program

The Main Street Program has an incentive for Halsell Street Merchants who are interested in updating the facade of their building. Our downtown buildings are more than just bricks and mortar; they are the structures at the very heart of our community. The premise of the Main Street program is economic revitalization through architectural preservation. To support this mission, Bridgeport Main Street is proud to offer a comprehensive and generous facade improvement incentive program for businesses and property owners within the Main Street district (Halsell Street from US 114 to 13th Street.)

The Bridgeport Facade Grant Incentive Program is a 50/50 matching fund grant of up to $5,000, and we encourage business owners to apply.

Hotel occupancy tax funds support these programs. In addition, all building improvements must adhere to Bridgeport Main Street design guidelines, be pre-approved by the Bridgeport Main Street Design Committee, and then submitted for final approval by the Bridgeport City Council.

Please see the Façade Grant Application for more details and guidelines. For more questions, please contact
Krystal Smith, Main Street Manager, at 940-683-3411 or email ksmith@cityofbridgeport.net
