Storefronts: Small Business Façade Improvement Grant Program, 2022



The City of Medford’s Storefronts program is a façade improvement matching grant program providing commercial business and property owners with financial support and design assistance for the enhancement of commercial building facades. A façade improvement program is an important economic development tool that encourages property and business owners to improve their building storefronts. Exterior improvements to buildings in a commercial area can lead to revitalization of neglected or older commercial districts and help small businesses improve visibility and curb appeal and attract more customers.

The Storefronts grant is structured as a reimbursement of a property or business owner’s investment in eligible storefront façade enhancements. As part of the program, successful applicants will also receive design and construction management assistance from an urban design consultant designated by the city. The City of Medford anticipates funding 10-20 projects in 2022.
