The town of Cheraw will again offer businesses located within town limits a matching grant to assist in the enhancement of their building’s exterior. During 2013-14, the town assisted 12 business owners and spent a total of $9,940.61.


Grant funds from the façade grant program may be used for exterior signs, awnings, painting and doors. Interior work and roofing are not allowed under the program’s guidelines. Grant awards must be matched dollar-for-dollar by the eligible business or property owners.


The maximum grant for any one project will not exceed $1,000. Once the grant is awarded, the recipient must initiate façade work within 60 days or the grant will be presented to another recipient.


Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis by the town’s Board of Architectural Review. Priority consideration will be given to businesses that have not previously received a façade grant.


Applications are available at the Cheraw Town Hall, 200 Market St., during normal business hours. Work initiated before the board’s approval will not be eligible for the façade grant.

Miller Ingram: Miller Ingram, Attorney $1,000
