The Neighborhood Renaissance Block Challenge encourages groups of neighbors to collaborate on exterior improvements to their properties in order to boost confidence in Jamestown’s neighborhoods and inspire others to reinvest.
Participating property owners in a Renaissance Block are eligible for the following assistance, regardless of income:
- Matching funds (a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $2,500, for exterior improvements)
- Access to discounts from sponsoring hardware stores and garden centers
- Discounts from coordinated purchasing of materials or services
- Design assistance
Those who wish to take part in the program need to take part in the pre-application process prior to Friday’s deadline.
