City of Freeport and RAMP to Collaborate on 2016 Downtown
Accessibility Improvement Program

The City of Freeport and RAMP are excited to collaborate on the 2016 Downtown Accessibility Improvement Grant Program. The program is designed to provide financial incentives to facilitate improvements that increase the accessibility of buildings located within the Downtown Tax Increment Financing District (Downtown TIF). The grants are provided in recognition that the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) may present compliance challenges for many buildings located in Freeport's downtown, and that financial assistance may help initiate improvements on behalf of building and business owners. The City has allocated $15,000 for 2016 Downtown Accessibility Improvement Grants with the goal of increasing investment in downtown Freeport and prioritizing barrier removal in order to open doors for all who live in the community.
