Facade Grant Program

The City of Raleigh’s Facade Grant Program helps businesses and property owners in older commercial areas upgrade and improve their building’s exterior appearance. The program requires a 50/50 match and reimburses approved applicants up to $5,000.

Eligible improvements include:

  • The removal of false fronts (such as aluminum panels)
  • Repair or replacement of windows, doors, and cornices
  • Repair or replacement of façade materials
  • New, more appropriate signage
  • New awnings
  • Exterior painting (when part of a larger rehab effort)
