2017 Retail Incentives Program

The 2017 Retail Incentives Program is a program of Beverly Main Streets, made possible by the generous support of Endicott College. The goal of the Program is to fill vacant or underutilized retail storefronts and to foster the growth of quality retail in the Main Streets District, building upon and complementing the strength of existing businesses in the District. The Program will provide financial support to qualified new retail businesses during the critical first year of new or expanded operations. In 2017, there is $15,000 available for grants. The financial support will be in the form of rent assistance grants. The maximum amount of a grant will be $7500. Details are in the application.

NOTE: this grant is for qualified new specialty retail businesses, and qualified specialty retail businesses located currently in downtown Beverly and expanding by more than 30%. Business owners must not have signed a lease before they apply. Please see Eligibility Requirements #2 in the application below for a list of qualified retailer types.
