In order to better support our businesses, the City of Hyattsville has created a Commercial Façade Improvement Program. The program provides funding to business or property owners within the three targeted investment areas to improve their building’s façade.
The grant is a dollar-for-dollar matching grant of $5,000 - $50,000. The use of grant funds are limited to exterior improvements including re-painting, exterior shutters, gutters, windows, siding, doors, masonry, finishes, lighting, and signage. The funds are ineligible for interior improvements, structural repairs, or roof repairs.
If you would like to participate in this program, please review the program guidelines and application. The application for the 2019 grant cycle is open from March 27, 2019. Applications are due at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22, 2019. Click the links below to download the application materials and guidelines.
