A Façade Improvement Grant Program has been launched in Danbury’s Downtown Revitalization Zone. The grants are aimed at incentivizing private development in the city center area. The maximum amount of any grant is $10,000, with a maximum of $50,000 per property, or 50% of the total façade improvement costs, whichever is less. The reimbursement grants are being offered on a first-come basis. The Downtown Revitalization Zone includes Main Street from Elmwood Place to Franklin Street, as well as the areas of Ives Street and Lee Hartell Drive. Full eligibility requirements for property owners, tenants and prospective purchasers are included in Program Guidelines, available on the City's website. Applications must be completed and returned to the Permit Center in City Hall.
