The Lyons National Bank (LNB) and the Lyons Main Street Program (LMSP) are offering a grant opportunity to commercial property owners located in the LMSP designated district.  The purpose of this grant is to assist in the renovation of the facade of the property or structural repairs.

The amounts of the grant are $500.00 to $1,000.00 with a 50% match.  The uses include but not exclusively to structural repairs, window replacement or repairs, façade painting and signage.   This grant is not meant for major repairs or construction.
