Facade Improvement Program
The Façade Improvement Program is a project which provides funding assistance to property owners in targeted areas of Grand Island. Funds provided by the program are utilized to rehabilitate commercial building frontages.
By making these funds available, the Façade Improvement Program contributes to the improvement of the overall appearance of buildings and and entire neighborhoods, which results in a stronger customer base and economic growth for area businesses. Recipients are required to invest a minimum of $7.00 in to the total cost of the project for every $3.00 received from the façade grant. The Community Redevelopment Authority in the past has granted funds for façade improvements in amounts ranging from $10,000 to $300,000.
