Business Grants

Facade Grants

A positive face on a business property says a lot about the vitality of that business and the area, and invites more business, as well as customers, into that community. That can only be good for any business. Here’s an opportunity that’s available to encourage exterior improvement and value-add for both property owners and tenants.

The HEDC Façade Grant covers projects such as non-tinted windows, doors, signage, awnings, lighting, masonry repair, painting, landscaping, fencing and more.

Ineligible projects are: vinyl awnings, electric box signs, interior items, security systems, roofs, paving, routine maintenance, previously completed items.  Click here to view our Facade Grant brochure: Facade Grant Brochure For more details on this program please call Stephanie Harling @ 414-431-2274 or email.  Additional Facade Grant opportunities with the City of Milwaukee can be found at City of Milwaukee Facade Grants
