Enterprise Zone Facade Grant Program

As part of the Enterprise Zone program, the Facade Grant program is administered through the Economic Development Authority.  This program awards qualified projects located within the Enterprise Zone a reimbursement on approved facade renovations up to one-third of the amount invested, with an award cap of $25,000.

A few quick points (more in the Enterprise Zone Packet) to know about facade grant eligibility. In order to qualify the building and project must:

  • Be commercial, industrial, or mixed-use (no more than 80% residential)
  • Eligible facade(s) must face a public right-of-way with at least one public entrance
  • Work must be done by licensed contractor
  • Be documented and tracked with detailed invoices, receipts, and payments

Applicants must submit a completed Facade Grant application packet to the EDA for approval prior to demolition or construction on the facades where assistance is requested.
