May 2, 2017 - East Main Redevelopment today received the Governor's Award for Historic Preservation. The East Main Redevelopment project, a catalyst for revitalization of the primarily vacant block of East Main Street, has changed the face of downtown Milan. The project is the redevelopment of four historic buildings (constructed between 1845 and 1892) into a mixed-use project that includes fifteen new apartments and eight storefronts restored to their original facades. The 27,000 square foot project provides fourteen residences (eight of which are set aside for low-to-moderate income tenants) that are within walking distance of all downtown businesses and Wilson Park, and also features 11,000 square feet of commercial space.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) business and industry loan guaranty program has been an important economic development financing tool for rural America. Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), more than $1.6 billion was authorized for the loan guaranty program. Similarly, the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) program, amended in 2006 to ensure that non-metropolitan communities were allocated a proportional share of qualified low-income community investments, has accounted for significant investment activity in rural communities. From 2003 to 2011, more than $3.5 billion was invested in non-metro census tracts under the NMTC program. Unfortunately, until now these two programs could not be combined.
