Norfolk’s new Façade Improvement Grant was created in partnership with the business community to revitalize urban commercial corridors and uplift the surrounding neighborhoods they serve. The Façade Grant will offer eligible commercial building owners and small businesses the means to undertake exterior and interior renovations, such as fresh paint, new signage, improved lighting, and aesthetic and operational upgrades that align with the areas’ unique character.
The City of Norfolk is a vibrant and diverse community dedicated to fostering economic growth, community development, and sustainable progress. The Facade Improvement Grant is a testament to our commitment to enhancing the visual appeal of our commercial corridors and strengthening the bond between businesses and neighborhoods. With this initiative, we embark on a journey of transformation that will pave the way for a brighter and more prosperous future for all.
Applicants must be a Norfolk-based business or commercial property owner at the time of application submission. Please review all of the drop down menus on the Commerical Corridor page for detailed information regarding applicant qualifications, eligibility requirements, and grant parameters.
