The Village of Riverside is accepting applications for the Façade Improvement Grant. The grant program aims to promote the continued use and maintenance of commercial buildings in the downtown area and in the Harlem Avenue Business Districts by helping property owners and tenants rehabilitate and restore eligible structures. Reimbursement grants are provided to owners or tenants in recognition of the positive impact that individual building improvements can have on the overall appearance, quality, and vitality of the community.
Exterior improvements include new signs, awnings, tuckpointing, window/door replacement, and other similar work. The Village will reimburse 50% of the costs up to a maximum of $5,000, with a minimum job value of $500. Additionally, the Village is only requiring one bid to be obtained.
If you are interested in the program, the Village recommends contacting Karin Johns, Finance Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 708-447-2800 ext. 232 to schedule a pre-application meeting.
