Downtown Revitalization Program

In 2021, the City Council and EDA established a major renovation grant program to help protect the character of our downtown.  Like other Harmony initiatives, this unique program underscores the commitment of the city to be proactive, assist small businesses, and enhance the livability of our community.  

Program goal: To protect and enhance the character of Harmony’s historic downtown by strategically providing funding to renew and extend the life of core downtown buildings.  Thereby supporting a core feature of the Harmony community which will retain and attract businesses and residents, improve tax base, and encourage new growth throughout the community. 

This program will:

  • Provide major grant funding for major visible exterior renovations that will be long term “once in a lifetime” type repairs/improvements. 
  • Provide funding for projects that would not otherwise happen without assistance.
  • Eliminate barriers for participation in the program.
  • Create high-impact results to save and improve the unique structures that give downtown Harmony its identity.
