Downtown areas help define communities and invigorate tourism. The State of Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) administers the Downtown Revitalization Program to assist with impactful downtown improvement projects to revitalize the cultural heartbeat of communities through redevelopment. These projects eliminate slum and blight conditions on the front and selected side facades of eligible buildings in core downtown areas, and address code violations for commercial structures. Sub recipients are prohibited from using Downtown Revitalization program funds for improvements related to residential portions of mixed-use buildings. Project buildings must be situated within a downtown target area as defined by the community, in which at least 25% of all buildings are judged through individual surveys and documentation to be in fair and/or poor condition.

For more information on the CDBG Downtown Revitalization Program or if you need assistance developing the application, please contact Debbie Feeback, Chief Development Officer at debbie.feeback@ded.mo.gov or Harry E. Bozoian, CBDG Planning Specialist at harry.bozoian@ded.mo.gov
