The Neighborhood Commercial District Improvement (NCDI) Program is soliciting proposals from qualified business owners, commercial building owners, and commercial districts to secure loan/grant funding to enhance exterior appearance of commercial buildings and supporting the beautification of commercial districts. The goal of the NCDI Program is to provide loans/grants in targeted Neighborhood Revitalization Strategic Areas (NRSA) as identified by the Community Development Administration (CDA).  

NCDI is administered by the St. Louis Development Corporation (SLDC) and funded by the Community Development Block Grants Program (CDBG). The intent of this program is to provide an investment incentive in the targeted footprint focusing on low-moderate income (LMI), predominantly residential communities. With this purpose in mind, CDA and SLDC has designed this program to assist in development in communities that have experienced decades of disinvestment. Further SLDC seeks to achieve the additional objective of providing support for on-going planning and community efforts in key redevelopment areas, and for preservation of existing historic resources and community character through appropriate building treatment and design.
