Woodward Action wants to help fund next streetscape project

The Woodward Avenue Action Association wants to help the communities along Michigan’s Main Street put their best face forward with its new streetscape grant program.

The association recently received $160,000 from the Federal Highway Administration to help fund streetscape design or improvements along the Woodward Avenue corridor.

“We are looking for projects that will actually come to life,” says Nicole Brown, outreach and promotions coordinator for the Woodward Avenue Action Association.

The grants will range between $10,000 and $50,000. The projects can be for things like crosswalk improvements, new signage or decorative streetlights. Applicants can be either municipalities or non-profits that border the Woodward corridor.

Applications are due by Jan. 16. For information, call (248) 288-2004.
