  • Increased the total grant fund from $4,000 to $12,000
  • Increased 50% reimbursement per applicant maximum from $2,000 to $3,000
  • Amended eligibility …businesses who have not received a façade grant in the previous two calendar years are eligible
  • Amended eligible expenses to include outdoor eating areas
  • Amended eligible expenses to include work started in the current calendar year
  • Reduced intake period (April 30) so that projects can proceed earlier in the year
