The City of Palatka Community Redevelopment Agency (hereinafter referred to as “the CRA”) hereby solicit applications for the Building Improvement Grant Cost Share Program for projects located within the City of Palatka Community Redevelopment Agency Areas. The Program is intended to encourage the redevelopment of blighted residential and commercial properties by assisting those who are attempting to improve properties which are most in need of rehabilitation or remodeling; do not necessarily depend upon grant funds to move forward; and which have a greater probability of successful completion. To be eligible for consideration projects must be located in a City of Palatka Community Redevelopment Agency Tax Increment District and advance the goals outlined in the CRA plan.
The program shall be publicly advertised and accepted by posted deadlines in two cycles. The CRA reserves the right to apportion funds between the two cycles as it sees fit. Applications, if deemed complete and eligible, are evaluated and ranked based upon competitive criteria and will be forwarded to the CRA board for funding consideration. Awards are subject to the availability of funds within the specific Tax Increment District Fund (i.e. South, North and Central) where the project resides. The CRA reserves the right to request additional information and advertise properties receiving incentives.
Applicants interested in participating in the program must submit a completed and signed application along with supporting documentation to in a sealed envelope to:
