CoSign and CoSign+ Applications Open

January 31 @ 12:00 PM - March 15 @ 12:00 PM

The CoSign project is a collaboration among the American Sign Museum, The Iowa City Downtown District, the City of Iowa City, presenting sponsor MidWestOne Bank and the greater Iowa City community to design and install creative new business signage in the Downtown District to increase economic activity in the community. The new signage is created by helping partner small business owners, visual artists and designers, and professional sign fabricators, all coordinated by the ICDD.

CoSign 2019 will offer competitive 50/50 matching grants up to $3,000 for compelling, creative, projecting storefront signage that exceeds expectations and enriches the streetscape of Downtown Iowa City. Businesses can submit as many different potential designs as they like, with each design needing its own application.

CoSign+ 2019 will offer competitive 50/50 matching grants up to $1,000 for permanent storefront enhancements that creatively improve business façades such as new lighting, tiled entryways, substantial paint jobs, and more. Any impactful permanent improvement will be considered. Businesses can submit as many different and varied proposals as they like, with each design needing its own application.
