Grants of up to $25,000 to Texas businesses in eligible locations to improve the exterior infrastructure of landmark retail locations. Applicants should contact program staff prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended for improvements necessary to develop or promote new or expanded business enterprises. Funding may be used for construction, contractor fees, and materials. Eligible properties must be located within the City of McKinney.
The Retail Development Infrastructure Grant Program (RDIG) was created as a pilot program to provide funding support for infrastructure improvements for landmark retail properties within the City of McKinney. 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).
Retail Development Infrastructure grants must be well-planned with stated goals, objectives, and evaluation measures that demonstrate a positive impact on the community.
Grants will fund infrastructure improvements that include:
Property owners will be responsible for maintaining any infrastructure improvements made with RDIG funding for ten (10) years.
Preference may be given to applicants who have not received funding from MCDC within the previous 12-month period and to those 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.
The project must be completed within one year.
