The Façade Improvement Program provides grants to businesses or property owners to enhance their store fronts.
Grant funds can be used for:
- safety lighting
- anti-graffiti film coating on windows
- limited exterior structural improvements
- limited landscaping
We place a priority on painting, lighting, and anti-graffiti film coating for projects we select through the application process. All improvements done through the facade grant must be performed at prevailing wage.
Program participants will receive a $10,000 whole grant, and up to $5,000 additional matching grant funds. All grant funding is provided as a reimbursement for project costs.
Reimbursement to a design consultant for façade design services is also available for up to an additional $1,000 per project.
