MEDC offers Flag Grant
At their meeting on May 9, 2017, the Mexia Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) Board of Directors approved a new grant program for existing businesses and commercial property owners within Mexia city limits. The US & Texas Flag Installation Grant is intended to encourage patriotic displays that enhance the appearance of commercial properties and foster civic pride. The grants offered up to a maximum of $500 can be applied toward the cost of flags, poles, mounting hardware, lighting, and installation.
The idea for the program originated with MEDC Board Director Jeff Gipson who explained, “As I drove through other small towns as part of my job, I noticed how nice the display of the flags looked. They are colorful, show pride in our country and in the community. I wanted to encourage Mexia businesses to put out flags as well.” The other Board members agreed and have created a grant program that is easy for businesses to access with a short one-page application and quick turn-around. Both the full policy and application are available on the Mexia EDC website by clicking HERE or at the Mexia EDC office, 214 N. Sherman St., Suite 3, Mexia, TX 76667 during normal business hours.
