Jacksonville Main Street is one step closer to bringing back the successful Levitt AMP Concert Series.

Nearly 24 hours after online voting polls closed, Jacksonville Main Street received the word it cracked the top 25 in total votes for the 2017 $25,000 matching grant.

Jacksonville was one of the 15 organizations that qualified for the concert grant last year that brought in ten weeks of free musical performances. Artists included Fivefold, Sara Ross, David Gerald and Benton Blount.

The decision of which finalists receive the $25,000 grant is now in the hands of the Levitt Foundation.

Each finalist will be reviewed and the winning towns will be announced on January 5th.
