Phase two Façade Grant announced for Downtown Wiggins

Facelifts are coming soon to Downtown Wiggins!

Stone County Economic Development has partnered with Mississippi Power to announce phase two of the Façade Grant for Downtown Wiggins.

The purpose of the program is to offer financial assistance to downtown businesses working to make aesthetic upgrades to their exterior business sites.

For this second phase, eight businesses have been awarded more than $30,000 for exterior improvements. Stone County EDP Executive Director Betsy Rowell said, “People who want to improve their businesses…they might be just opening, they might’ve been opened for a long time. This allows them an opportunity to parlay their investment with an investment from Mississippi Power and EPD.”

This is an upgrade from phase one, which totaled about $10,000.
