Façade Improvement Grants

Façade Improvement Grants

Commercial properties in Newport News continue to benefit from the Façade Improvement Grant (FIG) program by providing matching funds toward eligible façade improvement projects.

The program has been highly successful since its debut, and in 2015 leveraged approximately $1.4 million in private investment, benefiting 18 properties City-wide. Over the life of the program, approximately $1.8 million in EDA/City funds have been committed to Newport News property owners and businesses toward fulfilling the FIG program’s mission to restore, sustain and improve commercial properties throughout the City.
