Grants of up to $25,000 to McKinney, Texas businesses for infrastructure improvements to local landmark retail properties. The funds may be used for construction, materials, and licensed contractor fees. Projects must be well-planned with stated goals, objectives, and evaluation measures that demonstrate impact to the community.
For the purpose of this program, “landmark retail” is defined as buildings within the historic downtown area with boundaries that coincide with the “Cultural District” designation; retail redevelopment opportunities at locations that are viewed as gateways into the city (e.g. Highway 5 and Spur 399 – and other locations along Highway 5; Virginia Parkway and 75).
The Retail Development Infrastructure Grants will fund infrastructure improvements that are exterior to a property, necessary to promote or develop new or expanded business enterprises, and may include:
- Electric Utilities
- Gas Utilities
Preference may be given to applicants who develop and demonstrate multiple revenue streams to financially support Retail Development Infrastructure requests - and are not applying to other City of McKinney entities (e.g. Arts Commission, City of McKinney Community Support Grants, McKinney Convention and Visitors Bureau).
GrantWatch ID#: 184794
The maximum award for any single grant will be 50% of total cost of the infrastructure improvements proposed, up to a maximum of $25,000.
Retail Development Infrastructure projects must be completed within one year, or consistent with performance agreement.
