Reveal Jewell’s Gems Downtown

Program Guidlines:

REGENT Grant is an exterior / interior building renovation and signage grant for JADE Business Members.

  • The Jewell R.E.G.E.N.T. Program exists to offer partial reimbursement to qualified applications (defined as building owners and/or business owners) for projects undertaken to improve their buildings/businesses according to the following guidelines. Grants can be awarded up to $500 (on a 50/50% match) for exterior or interior building improvements. (Example: On a $750 project the building owner pays $375 of the costs and the R.E.G.E.N.T. Program grants $375).
  • Grants can be awarded up to $250 (50/50% match) for signage or business equipment/furniture for buildings in the business district.
  • The program funds are available until the pool of money allocated for the grant program is exhausted.
  • Projects must be completed within one year from the date the request is approved.
  • A maximum of $5,000 can be awarded to a property owner at any one location. Once $5,000 has been awarded, a period of five years must pass, beginning with the date the first grant was awarded before future grants will be considered.
  • Projects that have accompanying Main Street conceptual drawings provided by the state Main Street Consultant and have not been granted funds previously by JADE will receive priority.
  • Purchases should be made locally if possible.
  • Labor, if performed by the property owner or close relative, is not a reimbursable expense.
  • The design review committee will determine if your project is eligible and will notify you of their decision.
  • Upon completion of project, submit copies of receipts to JADE.
  • Your business will be reimbursed 50% of the total amount of the improvements or an amount not to exceed $500 for exterior / interior building improvements or $250 for signage or business equipment/furniture (whichever is appropriate).
  • Current Business membership in JADE is required.
