Eden Downtown Development Inc. (EDDC) and the City of Eden value the commercial buildings in the Eden traditional downtown areas and offer incentive grants to provide assistance with the significant improvement and rehabilitation of downtown properties. The Building Rehabilitation Grant (BRG) program was created to provide matching grants to encourage improvements and/or upgrades to the interior and exterior of downtown buildings to make them more attractive for new, existing, and expanding businesses. Under the program, applicants are eligible for up to thirty- three and one third percent (33.33%) of the actual improvement costs, up to a maximum amount of $5,000.00. Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis and grants will be awarded based on the project meeting the program eligibility requirements. Grants will be awarded depending on the availability of funds.
