GRANTS & LOANS
Downtown Development Revolving Loan Fund
The purpose of the Downtown Development Revolving Loan Fund (DDRLF) is to assist cities, counties, and development authorities in their efforts to revitalize and enhance downtown areas by providing below-market rate financing to fund capital projects in core historic downtown areas and adjacent historic neighborhoods where DDRLF will spur commercial redevelopment.
The Façade Grant Program is funded and administered by the Downtown Development Authority of Bainbridge (DDA). Monies are available for exterior improvements only, and may be applied to a front, side or rear façade, provided the façade faces a public street or parking area. The program is designed to give property owners and business owner’s financial assistance for façade improvements.
The Downtown Development Authority of Bainbridge assists prospective buyers and/or property owners by providing a façade rendering of a downtown building. The rendering provides design assistance to potential developers and showcases the importance of rehabilitating our historic structures.
