Facade Improvement Grant
Facade Improvement Grant (Beautification Grant)
The Ingleside Development Corporation (IDC) is committed to helping Ingleside businesses thrive and be successful. A key part of being successful is the first impression: what the customer sees from outside of the building. Many businesses and storefronts require investment to enhance the curb appeal, promote the business, and attract customers.
The Facade Improvement Grant Program (FIGP) is an initiative available for eligible businesses to apply for funds in order to complete enhancement and improvement projects that upgrade the appearance and functionality of their existing exterior that is visible from the street. Matching grant funds may be provided for up to 50% of the actual cost of the project up to a maximum of $5,000. Total amount of grant will be determined by the IDC Board of Directors.
Program funding will be provided in the form of a reimbursable grant upon completion of the project. The applicant must have funding available to cover the total project cost upfront, prior to reimbursement. The FIGP is not designed to subsidize corrections to building code violations.
