The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders are pleased to announce the Grow Monmouth Façade Improvement Program. Businesses in HUD eligible areas (eligible areas are indicated in pink on the attached maps) can apply for a grant of up to $1,850 for a facade upgrade such as a new awning, paint, door or sign. There are no matching funds required, and the total project cost cannot exceed $1,850.
The program, the newest initiative under the Grow Monmouth program, uses HUD Community Development Block Grant funds to help improve the look of privately held commercial buildings that are located in eligible areas to. A total of $75,000 has been set aside for this program. HUD eligible areas include all or part of 26 of the county’s municipalities. Asbury Park, Long Branch and Middletown businesses are not eligible for this program as those municipalities receive designated HUD Community Development Block Grants directly.
The application, guidelines and checklist are now available.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Economic Development office at 732-431-7470.
