The Business Improvement Area Commercial Property Improvement Grant Program (BIA CPIG) provides financial assistance to commercial property owners and owner-authorized tenants within active Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) across the City.

The BIA CPIG program will fund eligible façade improvements, limited improvements to interior space as well as barrier-free improvements to commercial properties. For properties that have a street-frontage greater than 25’, the grant is based on $400 per linear foot of frontage to a maximum of $20,000. The maximum matching grant for properties with a street frontage of 25’ or less is $10,000. As a further incentive for corner properties, the City may increase the maximum grant amount to $25,000 to recognize the importance of flankage facades. Artfully designed façade improvements or art pieces placed on private property that can be viewed by the public, may be eligible for an additional $10,000 matching grant.
