Grant Assistance for Ferndale

Back in 2022, the City of Ferndale agreed to fund the Downtown Ferndale Business Revitalization Grant program through the Ferndale Downtown Association.  This opportunity was made possible through federally distributed ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act) funds.  $400,000 was available to grant for both existing and incoming businesses that were impacted or delayed by Covid-19.  In addition, $50,000 was made available for the Downtown Improvement Fund for physical and aesthetic improvements to the Downtown core.  Funds remain and so we are opening up the 2nd round and will be taking applications throughout the month of April 2023.
