Applications Accepted for Expanded Batesville Main Street Re-Envision Grant

(Batesville, IN) – The 2024 Batesville Main Street Re-Envision Grant is open with expanded project eligibility.

The ReEnvision Grant is an incentive-based grant program aimed at providing financial support for qualifying property owners and tenants to re-envision and activate unused or underutilized spaces within their existing building to make the space available for a new retail, restaurant, food service, or specialty shop.

New this year, projects for permanent interior improvements to existing retail, restaurant, food service or specialty shops aimed to enhance the consumer experience will also be eligible for funding.

The Re-Envision Grant is available to building owners and tenants located within the Batesville Main Street District and is a dollar-for-dollar matching grant. A total of $20,000.00 is available under the program. Funds awarded under the Re-Envision Grant must be used by recipients to renovate, reformat, expand, reinvigorate, modify, or otherwise prepare the interior space of an existing building to (1) prepare with the intent to lease the space to a new or additional retail, restaurant, food service, or specialty shop; or (2) make permanent improvements to an existing retail, restaurant, food service or specialty shop with the goal of enhancing the consumer experience.

“Batesville Main Street is excited to again offer the Re-Envision Grant to our downtown district businesses with the goal of recruiting and adding new retail and restaurant offerings, but with the additional goals of improving our existing businesses to enhance our consumer experience in the Main Street District,” said Batesville Main Street Executive Director Amy Pretzer. “The 2024 Re-Envision Grant continues to build on our organizational goals to continually expand and improve market offerings enhancing the overall experience of the Batesville Main Street District.”
