Washington Incentive Fund (WIF)

Proudly Accredited by:

The goal of the Washington Incentive Fund (WIF) program is to encourage remodeling & repair work on commercial buildings in the Main Street District consistent with proven Main Street practices, including those that retain unique historic elements & use “green” materials.

Grants are offered on a sliding scale from $1000 to $10,000. All projects require owner funding & all elements of the project must meet MSW criteria. Grant funds may pay up to 50% of costs up to the amount awarded. Projects such as these are eligible:

  • Maintenance- Roofs & Awnings
  • Improvements & Repairs to existing buildings
  • Consultation with a structural engineer &/or asbestos removal specialist

Funds will be awarded after the project is completed according to contract with MSW. Grant amounts are subject to available funds. Previous WIF recipients are eligible to apply for new projects if they have not received a grant during the last active grant round.

Currently, Main Street Washington does not have an active grant round available, but please contact Sarah for more information about the program and planning for a successful application.
