Facade Improvement Project


Facade application flyer draft 2 (2)

The Facade Improvement Project by Sutphin Blvd BID makes grant dollars available to business and property owners on Sutphin Blvd between Hillside Ave and 88th Avenue to make improvements to their commercial properties and businesses. The program may be used to make improvements to  a business’ storefront. Property and business owners within the program area may apply for a maximum of 75% of the project’s total cost to make improvements.

Projects such as façade restoration, installation of new signage, awnings, new windows, or the installation of exterior lighting may be eligible for the program. Projects funded by the program must follow the BID’s design guidelines that help create a uniform storefront appearance on Sutphin Blvd.

This project is funded through the New York State’s office of Homes and Community Renewal’s New York Main Street Program.
