Andover Business Improvement Grant

2023 Grant Cycle

The Andover City Council has budgeted for grants to be awarded to businesses throughout Andover  in 2023. This is the seventh year of the Andover Business Improvement Grant program. The program's goal is to support local businesses through funding to make exterior building repairs or façade improvements, to replace legally non-conforming signs, to increase landscaping specifically in areas adjacent to sidewalks, to make ADA compliance improvements, or to make any improvements to the exterior of the business that makes the environment more pleasant for non-motorists.
