Ashland University Plays Role in $300,000 Downtown Revitalization Grant

City of Ashland officials and Ashland Main Street received word earlier this month that they secured a state grant that will help restore downtown Ashland. Two Ashland University employees played a role in this process.

The Ohio Development Services Agency announced that the city of Ashland was one of a handful of municipalities awarded a $300,000 downtown revitalization grant. The grant is a 1-to-1 match, meaning downtown building owners who apply for funding assistance and receive approval for their projects can use their portion of the grant to pay for half of their expenses. The building projects could include anything from updating areas to comply with building codes to fixing roofs or restoring facades.
