Commercial Rehabilitation

The goal of the Commercial Rehabilitation Program is to encourage commercial development through building rehabilitation and to improve the visual quality of the building. The program offers a grant and low interest rate loan for buildings located within one of the target areas.

A grant of 25% of eligible project costs up to $25,000 is available for exterior improvements.   A loan of up to $50,000 is available per property at a rate of prime less ½% for a maximum term of 25 years, with a private match requirement of 25%. Grants for historic properties must comply with Historic Property Exterior Restoration Policy.
