As of February 10, 2010, the City of Eagle Pass has once again joined the Main Street Program. Eagle Pass was one of the first five cities in the Main Street Program when it was chartered in 1981 and was accepted back into the program as a recertified Main Street program.
A Main Street Dedication Ceremony was held with special guest, First Lady of Texas, Anita Perry at the historic Downtown Maverick County Courthouse.
If you have a business or own a building in the Central Business District you may qualify for the Eagle Pass Main Street Façade Improvement Grant. The grant funds focus on exterior work on storefronts, as well as roof and foundation work on commercial buildings located in the Central Business District.

The Economic Development Department recently conducted a Downtown Living Survey 2020, which had a great response. This survey will serve as a tool to further revitalize our downtown. In the link below you can view a two page report that contains information on the walkability and safety of downtown; as well as which businesses and restaurants respondents would like to see more of.
