The Baltimore Development Corporation has a city-wide Façade Improvement Grant program (FIG), which provides funds to make exterior improvements to commercial and industrial properties. The grants are to be used to enhance the appearance of individual building façades, signs and awnings, and other exterior improvements. Both Businesses and property owners are eligible.
The goal of this program is to leverage public dollars to encourage private investment to spur continued revitalization efforts in our neighborhoods. Work cannot begin until the grant is awarded and an agreement letter is signed and returned to BDC. For more information about each grant, please review our FIG fact sheet. BDC has streamlined the FIG program to simplify the process and all three grants use the same application.
