The Community Re-Investment Program (CRP) is a matching grant for downtown building owners and business owners.  The program is a joint venture between Bluffton NOW! and City of Bluffton.  The goal of the program is to assist with the high costs of maintaining and building out historic downtown buildings. The assistance is done through a matching reimbursement grant that is funded through the City of Bluffton.  A participant can apply for up to a $25,000 dollar-for-dollar match if the project meets certain criteria.  The program is available for property owners, merchants, or contract holders to assist in rebuilding, repairing, renovating or improving the exterior façade, structural and mechanical components, and interior elements of buildings located in the city center in an attempt to provide safer, more attractive and more usable buildings and infrastructure in Bluffton's city-center.
