Facade Grant Program

The Façade Improvement Grant Program will promote economic development and stimulate business opportunities through a public-private partnership that offers economic incentives for the renovation, restoration, and preservation of the exterior of commercial and mixed used properties throughout many of the commercial areas in the City of Bath. The goals of the Façade Improvement Grant Program are to:

  • Increase the economic vitality and encourage private investment within core commercial zones in the City of Bath
  • Enhance the appearance of the streetscape in the downtown area and along the commercial corridor into the City
  • Strengthen or restore the original character of historic buildings
  • Allow for expanded commercial opportunities within the City of Bath
  • Act as a catalyst for continued investment and upkeep in commercial and mixed used properties within the City of Bath 

The deadline to apply for 2020 grants is Dec.31, 2019, at 4:30 p.m. All applications will be reviewed for program eligibility and funding by City staff. Eligible applications will then be forwarded to the Economic Development Committee for review.
