Update, April 15, 2019

The City of Richmond was designated a Stellar Community in 2013. This designation allowed the City the opportunity to seek grant funds to complete projects within the Stellar Boundaries. The City submitted a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) in late September of 2017 for the Stellar Façade projects downtown. On October 17, 2017, the City of Richmond signed an agreement with the Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) officially kicking off the Stellar Façade project. This grant, in the amount of $750,000, is funding 80% of the project. The remaining 20% is being funding by a grant from the Urban Enterprise Association (10%) and the property owners (10%) participating in the program. After bids were received in May 2018 and alternates selected by individual property owners, the project cost totaled $971, 007. This is under the CDBG grant application budget of $1,237,500. As with any historical rehabilitation project, unforeseen issues can arise when construction begins and this number is subject to change. A final project cost will not be available until all projects are completed later this year.
