Good Design is Good Business

The Storefront Redesign Program provides matching grants to property owners and small businesses in eligible areas of the City of Atlanta to help offset the costs of making exterior commercial façade improvements. Grant applications are being accepted through January 31, 2021 or until all funds have been awarded. The program is managed by the Department of City Planning and is funded with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) dollars provided by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. Funds are limited: the total available for the 2020–2021 program is $75,000.
