The Commercial Facade Program is out of funding for the remainder of 2022 and we will no longer be accepting applications.  Please check back in early 2023. 

The City of Fort Wayne created the Commercial Façade Grant Program (CFG) to help businesses transform their buildings' facades and revitalize the City's corridors. The program provides a 50% matching grant to eligible businesses that are located within an Economic Development Target Area (EDTA). The purpose is to improve the appearance of their building and the surrounding site. By visually enhancing the exterior of buildings, businesses increase their property values, maintain their marketability, and demonstrate confidence. The CFG program works to assist those owners to promote reinvestment, strengthen Fort Wayne’s commercial activity and enhance economic vitality in the City’s heart.
