Only a week left to apply for the Rural Innovation Placemaking Challenge from U.S. Department of Agriculture! This grant program is designed to empower rural communities to develop actionable strategies that capitalize on community assets through the creation of quality public spaces and contribute to the community’s social, physical, and economic well-being. Applications due July 26. Learn more: https://bit.ly/3iq5z9b

Looking for inspiration? In 2020, Pennsylvania's Main Street Coordinating Program, Pennsylvania Downtown Center (PDC), was a recipient of this grant program. A year after receiving this funding, we connected with PDC to hear more about their experience with the Challenge. Learn about their time with the program and explore the work they have underway in rural Main Streets across Pennsylvania: https://bit.ly/35TXaot

We love this testimonial from this downtown Atmore business owner. Click the link to learn more about the car tag initiative. https://www.mainstreetalabama.org/car-tag-initiative/

When you pre-commit a Support Small Business tag, Main Street Alabama will use the proceeds for grants that go to small businesses across the state, just like The Philanthropic Seed in Atmore!

Read about what our local small business owner Destany Morris would do if she received this grant from Main Street Alabama.

Is Alabama returning to the office?

A survey by Rev Birmingham last month reported that 19% of employees in the state’s largest city have returned to their downtown office places, but an additional 42% plan to do so by September. Another 29% are undetermined. http://ow.ly/CEZK50FjZ2Y

Alabama cities are returning to the office at a faster clip than major metro areas in the U.S.

From our Main St. to Yours... Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. ~ The Historic Downtown Hartselle Merchants.
Merry Christmas to the Main Street Alabama staff and their families, and to all the cities across the state!!! You have made this a year to be merry about. And lastly to a very special lady who is near and dear to you. I came across an old letter, that I wanted to share: 'Twas the night before Christmas & all through the town not a person was stirring, not even the town clown. But behold, just whom do we happen to meet-- a groovy young lady they call "Mary Mainstreet"! Quick as a flash she went spreading good cheer, wishing"Merry Christmas & Happy New Year"! This little tale is true of you, Mary. What a wonderful year we've had with you at the helm! Merry Christmas and "Thank You" from all of us.' -the Emporia, KS Main Street Board of Directors, 2000 I thought this epitomizes how hard she works for "Her City(s)", and how much she is appreciated and loved.
