The goal of the Andover Road Business Improvement Grant Program is to support local businesses through funding for exterior building repairs or facade improvements, to replace legally non-conforming signs with conforming signs, to increase landscaping specifically in areas adjacent to sidewalks, to make ADA compliance improvements, or any improvements to the exterior of the business that makes the environment more pleasant for non-motorists.
2021 is the fifth year of the program; $15,000 has been budgeted to award to Andover Road businesses. The grants will leverage at least an equal amount of money in investment in the community. The grant program allows applicants to be reimbursed up to one half (50%) of approved costs, with the City’s share not to exceed $5,000 per project annually.
Examples of Qualifying Exterior Improvements:
• Building repairs (painting, tuck pointing, awning replacement, etc)
• Building improvements (additions, replacements)
• Sidewalk and streetscape improvements (pedestrian pavement, seating)
Applications Accepted March 1 - April 30.
