There's nothing that gets me in the mood for gardening and spring projects as much as seeing the vibrant colors of daffodils, irises and tulips in bloom. I'm even more excited about spring this year, because I know that the neighborhood will be blooming with lots of renovation projects too.
The PHCA is extremely proud to be supporting seven residential facade renovation projects this spring and summer with over $22,200 in matching grants in our Pivotal Streets Residential Facade Renovation Grant Program. The interest in the first year of the program far exceeded our expectations. We got an astonishing 37 applications over the course of the month-long application period.
With so many worthwhile and valuable projects, our independent review committee had some very challenging decisions to make. The PHCA is working with the URA to offer more grants this summer and hopes to fundraise to provide even more grant opportunities next year.
We appreciate all the pride and dedication that Polish Hill residents have towards their homes and look forward to seeing lots of improvements this summer.
