Since 2006, Lehigh County has run a grant program that gives grants to municipalities. These grants cover streetscape amenities and planning.
I am pleased to say that Northampton County has launched its own grant programs. There are two. First, there is a streetscape amenities grant that will fund up to 50% (up to $5,000) of a streetscape project. Second, there is a planning grant that will go towards the creation of a downtown or master plan. This time, Northampton will fund up to 75% of a planning project.
I am more than happy to provide anyone with additional information.
