These grants are available to both property owners and business owners. The goal of the grant program is to assist in the cost of improvements to the facades of our buildings in the MSL District. These improvements can include any part of the buildings that are visible from the streets or landscaping.

The funds are matching funds, so you spend $1,000 and get $500 back. The minimum project is $500. Download the forms here and contact us if you have any questions!
