The Downtown Franklin Association's Facade and Security Grant Programs

The Downtown Franklin Association had a successful façade and security grant matching program in 2017. Fifteen businesses participated and were awarded $11,855. The DFA monies were combined with $36,410 invested by the business and property owners. All invested to create a more beautiful downtown.

Co-op advertising is another benefit of owning a business downtown. The Downtown Franklin Association sponsors co-op advertising in The Tidewater News, Western Tidewater Living and Real Country.

All downtown business and property owners may take advantage of these benefits. If you would like to learn more about the funding or any other program, please call the Downtown office to make an appointment.
