North Park Outdoor Business Enhancement Grant
In order to maintain safety, reduce liability, and maintain visual continuity throughout North Park we propose a set of recommended standards for outdoor business enhancements. We want these outdoor business enhancements to stay for as long as businesses and customers utilize them. Having a cohesive effort, investment, and plan will help sustain the program and further our efforts to promote North Park.
We are offering a matching grant that will help maximize funds for your project. For instance, if your budget is $250, we will match the $250 so you have $500 to spend. The maximum reimbursement amount is $1,000.
Rules & Eligibility
Applicants must operate a business on the ground floor within the North Park Business Improvement District (BID), be current on their BID fees, and have an active business license.
