The Duke Energy Hometown Revitalization Grant Program has provided Storefront Revitalization Grants to 20 communities across the state. Each community was awarded $25,000 via a partnership with a local 501c3 nonprofit. The funds are used to offer $500-$2500 of support to small businesses (less than 50 employees) that have been challenged by COVID-19 to change their business practices or to improve the external or internal features of their business. 

Eligibility

Eligible businesses must complete their work within 6 months of being selected and operate within the City of Kinston city limits* 

*As an organization focused on downtown, DK will prioritize applicants located within the Municipal Service District (MSD), but any business within the City limits may apply

Application Procedure

Interested business owners will complete an application that requires: 

  • A summary of the business 
  • How COVID-19 has impacted the business 
  • How the funds will be used 

 Applicants that choose to be reimbursed for previous COVID-19 related expenses must include receipts with the application. Applicants that choose new COVID-19 related business/property improvements or beautification projects will be responsible for paying the cost of the improvements and then showing receipts and proof of the work before being reimbursed by DK. Applicants must check in with DK within 3 months and complete the work within 6 months.
