Downtown Beautification Grant Program
Facilitated by Main Street Hartsville and sponsored by the Parking, Beautification, and Business Improvement Commission, this program provides funding to be used by downtown businesses for general downtown beautification projects.

The Bailey Bill is used by the city as an economic development tool that enables historically designated property owners to freeze property taxes for a set number of years. Once the property has been rehabilitated, the property taxes do not reflect the improved value. This tool encourages improvements to historic buildings to help offset increased rehabilitation costs that can be associated with historic properties.
