Accepting Applications: 2017 Downtown Beautification Matching Grant Program



The City of Valdez is now accepting applications for the 2017 Downtown Beautification Matching Grant Program.

The Beautification Matching Grant Program enables private property owners or businesses within the core downtown business district to seek 50:50 matching grants for specific types of aesthetic upgrades to buildings or land. As there is limited funding for this program, interested parties must complete and submit an annual application. All submissions are then evaluated by the Mayor’s Beautification Task Force.

Eligible properties must be used for commercial, non-profit, and/or mixed use purposes, and must be located in the core downtown area of Valdez. The core downtown area, for purposes of the grant program, is bordered by Galena Street to the south, Pioneer Drive to the north, Meals Avenue to the east, and Hazelet Avenue to the west, and along the Richardson Highway from Meals Avenue to Crooked Creek. Properties must also be current on City property taxes to be eligible for the grant program.

Grant applications are available at City Hall or online at  

Completed grant applications are due to the Assistant City Manager no later than March 15, 2017. Applications received after the due date will not be considered.

Grant applications may be dropped off at City Hall or mailed to: City of Valdez Beautification Matching Grant Program, Attn: Assistant City Manager, PO BOX 307, Valdez, AK 99686.
