The Downtown Artistic Revitalization and Exterior (DARE) Improvement Grant program helps businesses, property owners, and interested stakeholders improve the overall look and appearance of their property in Downtown Longview. The program is funded by the Downtown Longview nonprofit, One Hundred Acres of Heritage., which seeks to promote growth and vibrancy in Downtown Longview.
The matching grant program was intended for small to medium size projects that enhance the overall looks of buildings in downtown. Potential projects include, but are not limited to, murals, exterior painting, awnings, lighting, signage, and more.
Eligible projects must be for an exterior improvement on a building located within the 100 Acres boundary in Downtown Longview.
