Facade Improvement Grant
Spring 2017 grant guidelines are now available. See links below.
Using Community Development Block Grant funds from Housing and Urban Development, the City of Bangor has established a Façade Improvement Program to help strengthen low to moderate income neighborhoods in the City. The Program offers grant funds to be matched by their equal or greater investment of private funds for the purpose of restoring/renovating commercial storefronts and replacing deteriorated or poor quality commercial signs and awnings. A Façade Improvement Grant may be used for a variety of façade improvement activities including, painting, window or door repairs/replacements, signage, awnings, storefront restorations and other activities. The Façade Improvement Grant Program will provide financial assistance to mixed use or commercial properties. The City of Bangor will evaluate applications to determine eligibility and, based on a set of criteria, make grant awards to those proposed projects that are determined will have the greatest impact on enhancing the targeted areas.
If you have questions, or you like to have a conversation about your potential project, please contact Tyler Collins at (207) 992-4239 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
