The Main Street Makeover Grant is one of several types of grants offered by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) aimed at helping to bring new life to mainstreets in Wisconsin.

“It’s really just saying, ‘you know what? We’ve got your back while you’re doing this,” said Missy Hughes, WEDC secretary and CEO.

Hughes toured Main Street in Mayville on Monday to see the progress herself.

“It’s really all about creating a great Wisconsin for the people who are here and the people who come to visit and the people who decide to move here.

In Mayville, the grants are blending together passion with opportunity. The grants are also helping to bring new life to a coffee shop, a hotel, and a pie shop.
