Downtown Housing Grant

All projects must meet the recommendations specified within the Downtown Historic District Design Guidelines, adopted codes for the City of Newton, and the program instructions. 

Dangerous and Dilapidated Program

The primary goal of the additional program areas is to spark private participation and investment in the program’s goals of neighborhood revitalization, renewal, and improved curb appeal.
