Community Development Facade Grant Program

The purpose of the Community Development Facade Grant program is to encourage existing property owners and tenants to upgrade their buildings for public safety and accessibility. Enhancements to building exteriors increase public safety and improve the overall appearance of the facility, making it safe to the public and more accessible for persons with disabilities.
