Sullivan Renaissance provides assistance to 24 businesses

Sullivan Renaissance recently awarded $30,000 in grants and other support to 24 Sullivan County businesses as part of the 2017 Business Assistance Grant Program.  The program offers both financial and technical assistance to businesses interested in improving curb appeal, signage and customer experience.

Businesses were eligible to request a free design consultation with an architect, and matching grants for façade and sign improvements and/or landscaping projects.  Five businesses received design consultations, and the remainder were awarded grants up to $2,500.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  This year’s program is made possible with support from Bold Gold Media Group, Fisher Mears Associates, The River Reporter, The Sullivan County Democrat and Thompson Sanitation.  For more information about programs or for ways to get involved, call Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or visit the website at
