The Facade and District Improvement programs offers grants for small businesses and commercial districts located in eligible City neighborhoods. Eligible applicants may request forgivable loans up to $20,000 for facade work, depending on the project’s scope, private investment and commercial area eligibility. Secured forgivable loans of greater amounts are considered on a case-by-case basis.

Contact a Commercial District Manager in your area to learn more about this program and other opportunities.
