Are you the owner of a building in our beautiful downtown? Do you need some help with coming up with a new sign or facade to update your building? As an accredited Minnesota Main Street community,  downtown Red Wing businesses are eligible to apply for sign and facade design assistance.   This assistance is provided by the Minnesota Main Street program. We have to help you submit your application, but feel free to download the application and get started!

In addition, the Red Wing Port Authority recently approved a new matching grant program for commercial building signs, awnings and facades. For all commercial buildings/businesses in Red Wing, up to $2,500 is available for upgrades, replacements, and new installations. Design guidelines apply, which vary depending on location. An application is required; contact the Port Authority at 651-385-3639.

Lastly, don’t forget about Minnesota’s Property Assessed Clean Energy Program (PACE) for help with financing windows, HVAC’s, Solar, and much more! Find out more HERE.
