70+ Facade Grants Since 2001
The facade grant program is one of the DDA’s most powerful tools, affording direct investment in individual businesses. The DDA offers a 50/50 matching grant to encourage architecturally appropriate and lasting improvements to commercial facades. Improving physical appearance in this way promotes economic growth by attracting and retaining businesses, enticing customers, and halting property value deterioration.
The Timothy O’Malley’s transformation is so amazing, you might not think this is even the same building. DDA design assistance and a facade grant helped change an unassuming bar into a beautiful Irish pub, complete with a folding glass wall that melds the interior with the outside during summer evenings.
These projects are designed to create a vibrant built environment conducive to small business.
