Main St.

Graham Main Street works to serve as a catalyst for the continued revitalization, preservation, and economic health of the historic downtown area through collaboration with other organizations and use of community resources and volunteer insights, talents and energies within the Four Points Approach:

  • Design – improving downtown’s image by enhancing its physical appearance
  • Promotion – marketing downtown’s unique characteristics to shoppers, investors, and new businesses through special events, retail promotions, and on-going programs that build positive perceptions
  • Economic Restructuring – strengthen the existing economic base downtown while diversifying it
  • Organization – partnerships among various groups that have a common interest in the downtown and Fourth Street areas

Programs:

  • Exterior Appearance Grants
    The Graham Main Street Incentive Grant program was developed by the Main Street Advisory Board to help downtown merchants with small exterior renovations. Funds from this program are raised through volunteer Main Street fundraising promotions and corporate sponsorship. This Incentive Grant Program is designed to encourage restoration and renovation of the Main Street District through small grants to building and business owners. (Link to application)
