Bricks & Clicks
The Bricks & Clicks Grant Program encourages business expansion, retention and beautification by providing resources to downtown merchants and property owners to invest in facade or digital improvements.
The Stevenson Downtown Association offers grants up to $1,000 to provide Downtown Stevenson businesses financial assistance for:
improving business facades to enhance the downtown district experience
investing in e-commerce solutions to increase transactions and accessibility
Since the program began in October 2020, the Stevenson Downtown Association has awarded 35 grants to revitalize Downtown Stevenson! Funding for the Bricks & Clicks Program, as well as our other downtown initiatives, is provided by the Washington Main Street Tax Credit Incentive Program, city tourism taxes, private grants, and individual tax-deductible contributions.
Business or property must be physically located in Downtown Stevenson, which includes the waterfront.
Applicant must be in good financial standing with the city.
Any software programs should support brick and mortar operations -- nothing that moves a mode of business strictly online.
