In 2015, the Athens Downtown Development Authority initiated a grant to incentivize historic restoration. The Facade Grant Program can award up to $10,000 or half the cost of the proposed project. The ADDA is “thrilled” that the three businesses that have chosen to take advantage of the program are all located near or at the popular intersection of Clayton Street and College Avenue. All three projects differ in their restoration needs, but have the same goal in mind: bringing the building back to its original state.
