In an effort to enhance Holiday window displays and to offset the costs for such an initiative, the Municipality and Mt. Lebanon Partnership is excited to offer a one-time Holiday Window Decoration Micro-Grant to its membership.

This is a one-time grant for 2020.
Eligible merchants may apply for a 1:1 matching grant not to exceed $50 (i.e. if one purchased $100 worth of decorations, they could receive a $50 reimbursement).
Commercial District visitors will vote for their top three favorite window decorations beginning on Thursday, November 19th and conclude on Monday, December 21st.
