SILER CITY — The Siler City Development Organization (SCDO) has been awarded $25,000 from the Duke Energy Hometown Revitalization Grant Program to help improve building facades and interior rehabilitation in downtown Siler City.

These funds, along with contributions from the town and community businesses, will support exterior and interior building improvements for downtown. SCDO offers an investment matching program to pay back portions of facade upgrades and building rehabilitation. Facade and building projects can be expensive, and this supports and incentivizes businesses to continue to invest and build up Siler City’s economy.

For more information on the façade and building rehabilitation grants or to apply to the SCDO grant matching programs, please contact Dalton York, at dyork@silercity.org or 919-742-2323.

SCDO is a catalyst for the growth and sustainability of our town’s economy and quality of life. In total, the program has supported more than $50,000 in improvements in Siler City. SCDO is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
