Program overview:
It is the intent of this program to enhance the character and identity of a proposed impact area. There are opportunities to enhance storefronts and buildings so they create interest and draw people to the area. These investments should be attractive to consumers, perhaps enhancing outdoor and sidewalk use for consumers or adding creative amenities that stimulate consumer engagement in the area. By offering funding for multiple properties/projects in a targeted area, the program aims to create an immediate and visible impact, resulting in a more marketable retail, office, and housing environment.
