Historic Commercial District Revolving Fund
In 2019, Main Street America (MSA) selected Maine Downtown Center (MDC) as the next state partner to participate in the Historic Commercial District Revolving Fund (HCDRF), made possible through the generous support from the 1772 Foundation, Inc.
HCDRF will provide up to 15 small revolving loans to support highly visible facade improvements to buildings and storefronts in three Nationally designated Main Street Maine communities: Gardiner, Biddeford, and Skowhegan. Over the next three years, the Historic Commercial District Revolving fund will help Maine Downtown Center and their communities further their mission to “Catalyze. Strengthen. Guide.”
The Maine Historic Commercial District Revolving Fund will provide 3 year 0% interest loans to business/building owners in Biddeford, Skowhegan and Gardiner.
Building and business owners are eligible to apply. The initial application deadline is April 1, 2020 and will remain open until all the funds are used. Please see the loan application for details.
