Tulsa Provides Grants for Route 66 Neon Signs

Recognizing the ambiance and historical value of neon signs located along the city’s 26-mile, Route 66 corridor, the City of Tulsa (OK) is partnering with the Route 66 Commission to provide up to $80,000 in matching funds to local businesses seeking to restore their original neon signs or to install new signs conforming to the classic style.

The application period began on April 1 and Route 66 businesses can seek up to $10,000 in matching funds for each exterior sign project. Each successful applicant will receive a matching grant of up to $10,000. According to local officials, the goal is to revitalize the city’s Route 66 corridor and thereby attract tourism and investment to the area.
