Matching grants to assist in the exterior enhancement of businesses located within the town limits are still available from the Town of Cheraw. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis by the town's Appearance Commission. Grant funds from the Façade Grant Program may be used for exterior signage, awnings, painting, and doors. Interior work and roofing are not allowed under the program's guidelines. Grant awards must be matched dollar for dollar by the eligible business/property owner. The maximum grant for any one project will not exceed $1,000.00. Once the grant is awarded, the recipient must initiate façade work within 60 days or the grant will be presented to another recipient. Applications are available at the Cheraw Town Hall, 200 Market Street, Monday-Friday 8:30 am-5:00 pm. Work initiated before the board's approval will not be eligible for the façade grant. For more information about this program, contact David Sides at 843.537.8425.
