These days there’s a constant BUZZ about Downtown Tampa and all of the development.  Have you heard about the grants that are helping businesses with improvements, such as the Storefront and Sidewalk Cafe Grant Program?

Downtown Tampa Channel District

Grants are always something you hear about, but rarely do you see the actual successful implementation.  The Tampa Downtown Partnership has done an amazing job of getting the word out about their grant programs.  A great example is their work with businesses on improving/activating their storefronts/sidewalks.  These projects help the business continue to grow and creates an improved experience for the community – a huge win/win for all involved.  Take a look at these improvements that were done with the help of the Store and Sidewalk Cafe Grant Program.
