EDGERTON, Kan. – ElevateEdgerton!’s new EDGE Grant program has exceeded expectations.  Within just three weeks of launching the new Residential and Commercial Beautification program, ElevateEdgerton! has awarded all $5,000 set aside for 2022.

Property owners applied for a wide variety of property façade improvements, totalling $29,000 in total project costs.

“ElevateEdgerton! is extremely honored to be able to invest back into the community and help residents fund these type of improvement projects. Sometimes just a little extra bit of help can be the deciding factor and we are humbled with the interest we had in this program,” said ElevateEdgerton! President James Oltman.

The 2022 Residential and Commercial Beautification Grant funds have been exhausted and applications are now closed for the year.

The EDGE Grants program is a private grant program from ElevateEdgerton! that is funded entirely from contributions from the private business community.
