BID Awarded $500K Grant from NYS for Façade Improvement

The New Rochelle Business Improvement District (BID) and the City of New Rochelle announced today the receipt of a $500,000 New York State Main Street Grant. The grant will fund the BID’s award-winning Façade Improvement Program and enable the continued restoration of historically significant buildings in the downtown. The 2011 Main Street Grant was secured through the support and assistance of elected officials at multiple levels of government including New York State Assemblywoman Amy Paulin.

“New Rochelle’s Downtown has a distinguished architectural past, which is fortunately being preserved as we restore the many historic buildings lining Main Street through our BID Façade Program,” noted BID Chairman Marc Jerome. “The New York State Main Street Grant will enable the continued funding of this effort, which is a key component in our comprehensive strategy for further economic revitalization.”
