Downtown Incentives

Facade Improvement Grant Program
The City of Caldwell and the Caldwell Main Street Program seek to improve the image of downtown Caldwell and its Main Street District by stimulating Historic Preservation through the assistance of funds, and to help encourage restoration of historic storefront facades located within the designated Main Street District.  The Caldwell Main Street Facade Improvement Grant Program is set up to reimburse property owners, and in some cases tenants, after work is completed. Grant funds are matched 50/50 against private reinvestment.  For more information and for an application, please click on this link:
