Small Business Saturday

Saturday, November 28, 2015 is Small Business Saturday – a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. Please join in supporting your local small business by shopping at a small business right here in Monmouth this Saturday.

America’s small business owners are on the front lines when it comes to creating new jobs and opportunities. These local, visionary entrepreneurs are the men and women who take a chance on a dream and turn an idea into a vibrant business here in our community, creating destinations, jobs, products and services that enrich our lives, shape our community and move our local economy forward.

See you out on the town on Saturday! Learn more on Facebook.

Downtown Facade Grant Program

The Monmouth Facade Improvement Program is a matching grant program designed to help building owners within the Warren County Courthouse Commercial Historic District (roughly bounded by Archer Avenue on the North, First Street on the East, Second Avenue on the South and A Street on the West) improve the exterior facades of their buildings in accordance with the historic nature of the District. The maximum grant amount will be $7,500 match per project (50% match from program), as available funds allow, on a first-come, first-serve basis. The facade funds have been made available by the City of Monmouth and are administered by the City after approval by the Downtown Facade Committee.
