Some Main Street property owners may be eligible for grant money to improve their building facades if the state approves a borough grant application.
The Chambersburg Borough Council gave its unanimous support Wednesday night to Downtown Chambersburg. Inc.'s request to submit the grant application to the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development on behalf of the borough.
If the state approves the proposal, Downtown Chambersburg, Inc., will be in charge of administering $50,000 in matching grants, said Paul Cullinane, president of the organization.
Property owners can receive up to $2,000 in matching funds from the grant. If a project costs $4,000, the owner would be eligible for $2,000 in grants. If it costs $2,000, the owner would get $1,000.
