CITY SPOTLIGHT

Improving Auburn - one neighborhood and one business at a time...

Community Development, a division of Auburn's Economic and Community Development Department announces two new programs for citizens:

Neighborhood Challenge Grant Program -  Do you and your neighbors have ideas to beautify and upgrade your neighborhood, to create a safer environment, but just don’t have the funds and know-how to move forward?  The City of Auburn has created a program to help improve your neighborhood by offering grants to neighborhood groups and organizations to make improvements on public property.

STAR Business Loan Program - The Storefront Traffic Accelerates Revitalization (STAR) Business Loan Program is designed to encourage the creation or enhancement of business enterprises by providing a source of low interest and forgivable financing for commercial property owners, new or expanding businesses, or micro-enterprise business.   The program objective is to create new employment opportunities for low and moderate income (LMI) households and to revitalize storefront spaces in the target areas.

For more information about either of these exciting new opportunities, please contact Community Development Manager, Yvette Bouttenot at ybouttenot@auburnmaine.gov or call 207.333.6601 ext. 1336.
