MEDINA – An anonymous donor will continue to make money available to Medina property owners working on painting their buildings and other exterior improvements, including facade work.

This will be the fourth year the funds are available in the matching grant program administered by the Orleans County Chamber of Commerce.

The grants are available for up to $10,000 in a match for sites in the Village of Medina. People need to apply for the funds and a committee reviews the proposals. The money is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

There will be an informational meeting at 7 p.m. on Jan. 13 at Lee-Whedon Memorial Library, 620 West Ave.

The anonymous donor gave $200,000 in each of the first three years of the program, and is making $100,000 available in 2016.
