Facade Improvement Grant (FIG)

The Baltimore Development Corporation has a city-wide Façade Improvement Grant program (FIG), which provides funds to businesses for exterior improvements. The grants are to be used to enhance the appearance of individual building façades, signs and awnings, and other exterior improvements. The goal of this program is to leverage public dollars to encourage private investment to spur continued revitalization efforts in our neighborhoods.

There are three types of façade improvement grants: city-wide, Main Streets & Casino Area Grants for industrial properties. 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.
