The Commercial Property Improvement Grant Program (CPIG) provides financial assistance to commercial property owners and owner-authorized tenants within active Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) across the City.
The CPIG program will fund eligible façade and entryway improvements. For properties with a street frontage greater than 25 feet, it provides a grant on a matching basis of $400 per linear foot of street frontage, up to a maximum of $20,000 ($25,000 for corner properties or flankage exposed to a street). For properties with a street frontage of 25 feet or less, it provides a matching grant to a maximum of $10,000 ($12,500 for corner properties or flankage exposed to a street).
CPIG applications are accepted year round by the Downtown & Community Renewal Division. Applicants may apply once each calendar year.
