This is a list of all of the grant opportunities your downtown business may qualify for.  Check back often!

MATCHING FACADE GRANT PROGRAM

The appearance and condition of a downtown’s buildings, parking lots, and public spaces greatly contribute to the public overall impression of a town.  The Facade Improvement Grant developed by Downtown Morehead City, Inc. helps business and property owners improve their exteriors with available funding of up to $5,000. Contact our office at (252)808-0440 or fill out the Facade Grant application online. 

BACKING SMALL BUSINESSES GRANT

PRESENTED BY AMERICAN EXPRESS & MAIN STREET AMERICA

In partnership with American Express, the Backing Small Businesses grant program supports economically vulnerable and under-resourced small businesses with community reach. 

This year, eligible small business owners can apply for $10,000 grants for projects that grow or improve their businesses by building community, supporting their economic viability, or bolstering meaningful change.  

Applications will be accepted now through April 7, 2024.

 

WOMEN IN BUSINESS - AMBER GRANT

PRESENTED BY WOMENSNET

WomensNet founded the “Amber Grant” in 1998. The grant was set up with one goal in mind: to honor the memory of a very special young woman, Amber Wigdahl, who died at just 19 years old — before realizing her business dreams.

Today, WomensNet carries on that tradition, proudly giving away at least $30,000 every month in Amber Grant money. In recognition of the diversity of businesses owned by women, we’ve also expanded our grant-giving to include “Marketing Grants,” “Business Category Grants,” as well as two “$25,000 Year End Grants.”
