Warsaw Business Improvement Grant applications are due 


Town of Warsaw businesses have until Monday, February 20, to submit a property or store front enhancement or beautification grant request.

“The town council appropriated up to $6,000 in matching grants to assist town businesses to upgrade or improve their ‘drive-by’ appeal,” said Roger Lee, chairman of Warsaw’s Economic Development Committee. “This is our round one solicitation and we hope all funds are allocated during this cycle.”

Because February 20 falls on President’s Day, applications will be accepted until the end of the day, Tuesday, February 21, according to town manager Lee Hood Capps. However, those coming by mail must be postmarked on or before February 20.

The program is in its fourth year. Previous recipients have installed security lights, awnings, added flower boxes, installed shutters, painted the exterior, replaced windows, reconfigured parking areas and added perennial plants among other upgrades.

The Klothz Patch, First Impressions and Feather Your Nest are among previous winners, each receiving an improvement grant between $850 and $1,000 to match their own investments of $1,600 to $3,000.

Applications are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays through Fridays at Town Hall, 78 Belle Ville Lane, Warsaw, townofwarsaw.com; or contact contact Robert Moore or Capps, 333-3737, or rmoore@town.warsaw.va.us.
