The Façade Improvement Grant is not intended to pay for repairs or standard maintenance but will be available for exterior painting; landscaping; window, door or storefront improvements; lighting and upgraded signs in association with other façade/landscaping improvements.
The National Trust for Historic Preservation has noted that commercial building improvements have resulted in the following:
- An increase in sales in the year the improvements were made and sustained increased sales for several more years,
- Attracting new businesses and shoppers to the area,
- Promoting additional improvements by the participants and
- Encouraging neighboring properties to make improvements.
