Downtown revitalization is making progress.

Market Lubbock announces nine local businessses participating in the organization's downtown grant program. 

Two different types of grants are being offered. Facade, focusing on outside appearance, and permittable, including improvements to property that require a city permit. 

The grant program started last November to encourage investment and redevelopment in downtown Lubbock. 

"The momentum is amazing, and we think it's going to continue but its all because of the private investment that these busines owners and property owners are making," Special Projects Coordinator Jorge Quirino said. "The core of it, the absolute core of it comes from these businesses and property owners."

Market Lubbock is expecting to grow the program, setting aside about $1 million of their budget to help funding.
