(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Businesses are starting to show interest in doing business on Salt Lake City's Main Street, after the city offered to hand out free money.

The 20-thousand dollar grants are meant to help with the cost of opening up shop on Main Street, which the city is trying to revitalize.

Dave Oka, head of the city's Redevelopment Agency, says he's been flooded with calls.

The grants will only go to established businesses willing to commit to a five-year lease.

As the program is just getting started, Oka say he can't name any of the potential Main Street merchants yet.
