Attention Woodbury Business Owners
Woodbury Old-City Restoration Committee's Storefront Grant Program

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The Woodbury Old-City Restoration Committee ("WORC") mission is to protect existing historical structures within the City of Woodbury by actively restoring endangered landmarks and structures. The Downtown WORCs Project aims to assist the City of Woodbury's downtown revitalization efforts by improving the aesthetic appeal of existing structures, by restoring their history and character. WORC has designed this program to assist both, the exterior restoration of historic structures, and beautification of those buildings which complement our beloved district.

ELIGIBILITY: Owners of properties and/or owners of businesses in the blocks of South Broad Street between Red Bank Avenue and Carpenter Street with a requirement of retail and/or office frontage or access on Broad Street itself.

SCOPE: The renovations are intended to be historically significant to the City of Woodbury. Renovations may include the exterior of each property including but not limited to paint, trim, windows, roofing, awning, signage, lighting, surface materials. WORC will provide research assistance and custom design services to achieve a desired plan that is both agreeable to applicant and the WORC Board of Trustees.
