ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque’s Metropolitan Redevelopment Agency is set to launch another round of the Downtown Storefront Activation Grant Program. The program aims to attract business, improve safety and create a better downtown environment.

In hopes of revitalizing downtown, the program will award grants ranging from $50,000 to $250,000 to qualifying applicants. The program has a total of $750,000 in funding available. They say the program will remain open until all of the funds have been used. Applications will be reviewed based on first-come-first-served. They say the criteria to be eligible for the grants will include the square footage of the leased commercial space.
