Facade Grant Program
The Façade Improvement Grant (FIG) program is an initiative to visually improve business properties
demonstrating a need for public investment to spur further investment from the private sector. The goal
is to visually enhance the streetscape and increase interest in the designated area. The initiative also
serves as a tool in supporting and retaining small businesses.

The program will be administered by Economic Development Committee. FIG is a matching,
reimbursement program which requires the applicant to make the initial investment of the full project
costs; 50% of the eligible costs will be paid as a reimbursement based on verifiable evidence of payment
(canceled checks and receipts).

The maximum FIG amount available for any approved project or property is $5,000. Funding is
available on a first-come, first-served basis until the funding pool has been exhausted annually as
appropriated each fiscal year (beginning July 1st and ending June 30th the following year).
All recipients are required to enter into a FIG Agreement document that will establish the conditions of
approval and terms of grant disbursement. An individual owner, L.L.C., and/or other type of IRS
recognizable holding company who owns multiple properties and has applied for multiple projects in
town may only receive a maximum of $10,000 in funding per fiscal year referenced above.
