2020 FWBIA Façade Improvement Program

The FWBIA Façade Improvement Program provides funding to commercial and private property owners to redesign, renovate or restore commercial or industrial building façades. The eligible improvements include, but are not limited to, brick cleaning, restoration, wheelchair accessibility, doors, signage, windows,  window displays, lighting and masonry.

What are the benefits?

Improving the appearance of your building’s façade shows that you care about your property. In addition, your neighborhood streetscape is improved. This provides a more welcoming environment to work, shop and live.

How is funding calculated?

In order to qualify for funding, the cost of the job must exceed $100. If applicable, two quotes covering each component of the proposed work must be submitted with the application, and calculations will be based upon the lowest contractor estimate.
