Facade Renovation Matching Grant Program

The City of Jacksonville’s Façade Renovation Matching Grant Program provides commercial or retail façade renovation funding assistance for existing businesses in designated economically distressed areas (EDA) throughout the City (see property search below). The public investment in the facades of structures will provide the encouragement to entice investment in these targeted areas. It has the potential to translate into enhanced sales and or increase customers for many of the businesses.  Funding is subject to availability.
