The Kaufman Economic Development Corporation (KEDC) announced the creation of a new incentive program aimed at attracting new destination businesses to the historic downtown square. The Downtown Destination Matching Grant program aims to attract new destination-oriented businesses to the square that will enhance additional retail, dining and shopping experiences for Kaufman area residents and visitors.

“I am excited to work with our downtown merchants and property owners in the creation of this new tool to attract businesses that will enhance Kaufman’s historic charm and quality of life,” said Kaufman EDC Executive Director Stewart McGregor. “As the fastest growing county in the nation and one of 254 county seats in the State of Texas, Kaufman’s square offers tremendous opportunity to pick up additional unique retail, dining and shopping options that will draw in dollars from surrounding areas.”
