Funding for the acquisition, renovation or preservation of historic or priority buildings in downtown Council Bluffs.

The Storefront Grants Program, part of the Downtown Revitalization Fund, encouraged eligible properties to undertake comprehensive exterior repairs and improvements to historic commercial properties. The program provided grants or equity-like loans structured to accommodate other redevelopment financing tools. Many properties were able to improve their storefront with these funds which changed the face of the 100 Block and Haymarket districts.

The projects resulted in improved structural and visual quality of these properties and provided additional commercial, retail, and residential opportunities. Program has also motivated other property owners in the district to make improvements. Projects completed include:

 

105 Pearl Street 116 West Broadway 146 W Broadway 521-523 S Main Street
109 Pearl Street 128 W Broadway 215 S Main Street 805 S Main Street
117 Pearl Street 132 W Broadway 231 S Main Street 510 Bluff Street
127 Pearl Street 134 W Broadway 506 S Main Street
