The Downtown Enhancement Grant (DEG) program is designed to foster innovative approaches to activities, which support and promote community based planning, pre-development, and research initiatives. The goal of these projects is to improve the quality of life and opportunities for increasing private investment and employment in Indiana Main Street (IMS) communities. The Downtown Enhancement Grant priorities are directed by OCRA’s strategic plan and the National Main Street Four Point Approach.
