We are very happy to announce that the Town of Eden has been awarded a grant in the amount of $16,092 from the Eden Community Foundation to help beautify our Main Street. The Town was awarded the Main Street Grant in 2018 and has been working with 11 businesses this year to complete projects that will enhance our community. As part of the Main Street Grant of $300,000, the Town was awarded $15,000 to help with beautification of Main Street. The Eden Community Foundation has refocused their grant initiatives to include beautification of the Eden’s Hamlet area. Recognizing this, the Town sought grant funding to match the already awarded $15,000. The Town is very grateful to the Foundation for their support of the Eden community. More information on how the money will be used will be coming soon.
The Eden Recreation Department received a grant from the Arts Services Initiative of Western New York to help offset the costs associated with the Music on Main Street. This grant will help ensure that the Tuesday Night family friendly free concert series will continue for the 2020 season. We received $3323 which will be used to pay for the bands, staffing, licensing, and advertisement.
