Carla Markwart & Laurie Plunk, Board Members of the Galesburg Downtown Council GDC present Kandy Mecum, Branch Manager of Beacon of Hope Hospice, with a check in the amount of $1,000.  The check represents money from Galesburg Downtown Council’s Rent Reduction Program for their business relocation to 102 East Main Street.  The Galesburg Downtown Council represents a Special Service Area ‘SSA’ that pools independent funds from their membership to help the downtown real estate owners provide property incentives.  The Rent Reduction Program Grant funds are available for as much as $3,000 ($1,000 per year up to three years) through the Galesburg Downtown Council, provided the property owner agrees to provide a match in rent reduction for their tenant.  With landlord assistance, the grant provides a value of $2,000 per year, or $6,000 over three years. 

To learn more about the GDC’s Rent Reduction Program and other Qualified Improvements, go to and click on the Financial Program tab.  Over the last 20 years, the Galesburg Downtown Council and the City of Galesburg have funded over $455,600 in grants that has resulted in reinvestments in the downtown properties of over $4,300,000.  For more information about the Galesburg Downtown Council call (309) 343-1194 or visit the website at
