Main Street: Open For Business (MSOB)

The Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) with funding from SB21-252 will support efforts by local governments and regional collaborations to engage in small business relief through “Main Street: Open for Business.” This Initiative supports façade improvements and energy efficiency projects for businesses in the state’s traditional downtowns.

The program is designed to:
●    increase property values and visual appeal
●    increase sales and revenues in rehabilitated buildings
●    reduce energy consumption and lower utility bills
●    increase job retention/creation

Grants under SB21-252 are prioritized toward communities with multiple projects in their applications that will provide a catalytic ripple effect of investment in downtown districts.
