The Sign Incentive Program is a 50% matching grant program up to $1,000 for new, qualifying signage for businesses within the Historic District.
Any reimbursement (up to 50% with a maximum reimbursement of $1,000), would come “after the fact” based on invoices. Projects may be less than the maximum.
Reimbursement is 50% if contractors are from Cheyenne County and materials purchased are from Cheyenne County businesses. If an out of county business supplying materials or work is a Cheyenne county Chamber of Commerce member it also qualifies at the 50% rate. All non-qualifying contractors and or purchased materials can be reimbursed at a 35% rate.
Applications may be downloaded (PDF) or picked up from the Economic Development Office (1115 13th Avenue). The proposed project will then be reviewed by the Sidney Historic Preservation Board. If the board feels it meets the requirements of the program and the Design Guidelines, the funding request will be reserved on a first come, first serve basis.
