Rental Purchase Assistance Program (RPAP)

The City of Seymour and the Seymour Main Street Board values the role that our downtown plays in making Seymour a unique place to shop, eat and visit. A strong downtown enhances the quality of life for citizens of Seymour and helps to attract visitors. The Seymour Main Street Rental Purchase Assistance program is designed to aid with key business activities (retail/dining/arts/entertainment) that choose to locate within the Main Street area. Through this program, Seymour Main Street will provide rental or payment assistance for up to 12 months for businesses that are operating in the Main Street boundaries. Additionally, there is also an opportunity for this program to assist existing businesses to expand their gross rentable space.

The Rental Purchase Assistance Program would not be included in the $20,000 maximum per applicant. The maximum benefit a qualifying applicant could receive under the RPAP program is $6,000 which is a one-time only per qualifying applicant benefit.
