The Dalles URA Board Launches New Grant Program

The Columbia Gateway Urban Renewal Agency Board in The Dalles has launched a new grant program for property owners and tenants in the urban renewal district wishing to improve their properties, buildings, and tenant spaces.  The grants provide 50% match and up to $50,000 for commercial building/tenant upgrades; a 70% match and up $150,000 for mixed commercial and residential redevelopment; and a System Development Charge subsidy up to $10,000 for the construction of new dwelling units in the area.  The Urban Renewal Agency Board originally established grant programs for the area in the early 2000s, but in recent years City staff found that the programs were underutilized by area property owners, due to low caps on grant awards and an onerous process for applicants.  The new grant program offers higher award caps and a streamlined process.  For details go to
