Commercial Façade grant applications open
Applications for the city’s Commercial Façade Grant program are being accepted for the 2019 construction year.
The 11-year program allows local businesses the opportunity to improve the exterior of their building, the city of Fort Wayne said today.
Grants are made to qualified applicants in the core of the city designated as Economic Development Target Areas, or EDTAs. EDTAs include business corridors along Wells, Calhoun and Taylor streets, State Boulevard and Broadway.
The grant helps offset the cost of façade renovations, signage and other enhancements to improve the exterior of the business property.
Applications are available at www.fwcommunitydevelopment.org/facade and are being accepted in the Community Development Office, Suite 320, Citizens Square, 200 E. Berry St. through Dec. 14.
