A Franklin agency will give out more than $900,000 in tax-funded grants to pay for building repairs and renovations for homes and businesses in the city.

The Franklin Development Corp., a nonprofit organization created by the city and funded with tax dollars, awarded nine grants for projects, which have a total cost of more than $2.3 million, that must be completed within the next year.

The projects include façade improvements to downtown businesses, new parking lots, interior renovations, a new art and sculpture garden near downtown and additional funding for grants the city wants to give to low- to moderate-income residents to fix up their homes.
