Facade Improvement Grant

Main street revitalization is a nationwide trend that yields outstanding results. The rehabilitation of façades can enhance a historic shopping district’s vibrancy by drastically improving walkability, livability, and strengthening local businesses, all while sending a message of positive change for the subject district. Façade Improvement Grant Programs have potential to create a ripple effect, which may result in renewed area interest, new investment, and new customers for existing businesses. Improving the quality of our downtown streetscape is paramount to DDA’s success in its general mission of physical, economic and cultural revitalization of the downtown district.


The DDA Facade Improvement Grant has a total of $100,000 allocated for the 2019 program. The DDA will match 50% of eligible project costs up to $20,000 per grant.
