Facade Improvement Grant Program

Grow

The Façade Improvement Program provides grants to businesses or property owners to enhance their store fronts. 

Grant funds can be used for:

  • painting
  • safety lighting 
  • anti-graffiti film coating on windows
  • awnings
  • signage
  • murals
  • 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.
