The goal of the Hagerstown Facade Grant Program is to provide an incentive to businesses and property owners to enhance their building’s presentation to the public with improved storefront designs and other façade elements to contribute to the overall enhancement of the City Center. This program is subject to funding availability and is on a first-come, first-served basis. All projects must pertain to commercial or mixed-use buildings.
The program provides a 50% matching grant to approved projects for the following amounts:
Grants range from a minimum of $2,500 to maximum of $7,500.
Grants require a 1:1 match from the applicant. Example: a $2,500 grant would require a $2,500 investment from the applicant for a total project investment of $5,000.
*The minimum project cost is $5,000 ($2,500 each from the applicant and City), while the maximum amount is $15,000 ($7,500 each from the applicant and City). Projects that exceed $15,000 are still eligible to apply but can only receive a grant of up to $7,500.
