Commercial Visual Improvement Program

This is an exterior improvement matching fund grant opportunity for commercial buildings located in the Community Redevelopment Agency Boundary and zoned C-2, C-2A, or RP with a CUP with a non-residential use. Work must result in a combination of significant exterior visual improvements. Examples: façade upgrades; parking facilities; matching signage; painting; lighting; new or repaired/replaced windows, doors and awnings; window tinting; improved entryways; extensive cleaning; exterior security systems; and external improvements required to bring a building/property up to code.

The maximum grant award is $10,000 per property.  The funds are available on a first come first serve basis.  If a tenant is applying, they must have the signed authorization from their landlord for their application to be accepted.  Residential properties are not eligible for this program.
