PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — Mason County businesses now have until October 2 to apply for outdoor beautification funding. 

The Ludington & Scottville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Pennies from Heaven Foundation have extended the deadline for grant application and encourage local business owners to consider improvements to their outdoor spaces.

The selection committee is willing to consider any creative project that would be an asset to the business and its patrons.

Applicants may request up to a 50 percent match of funds for a project, with the maximum grant totaling $5,000.
