Easton storefronts to become revitalized

EASTON, Pa. - Easton's Main Street Initiative wants to make it easier for local businesses to fix up their storefronts.

Grant money is available for those businesses in a 20-block area downtown, also known as the Main Street Revitalization Target Area.

Most of the grant money comes from Northampton County and is a 50 percent match for projects up to $5,000.

The Main Street Initiative said better looking storefronts help draw people inside.

"It is a competitive process. Business, property owners, can reach out and apply for dollars,” said Amy Boccadoro of Easton’s Main Street Initiative. "It's anything that's on the building. Any façade work, new windows, doors…painting…those sorts of things."
