National Avenue has been the backbone of our community since its beginnings. Led by the City's strategic vision for the corridor, Economic Development created new incentive programs to boost the National Avenue corridor and help businesses thrive.
STOREFRONT IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM
The Storefront Improvement Program provides funding for exterior building improvements in the National Avenue corridor. Through this program, the City offers technical assistance and financial support to property owners and small businesses who wish to add curb appeal and make a creative, visible change to their storefront.
The InStore program provides forgivable loans for eligible retail, food, and other businesses to purchase equipment and materials associated with growing their business in the National Avenue corridor. The program is designed to help projects that transform vacant spaces or underutilized buildings.
The Code Compliance program provides forgivable loans to address building code compliance issues in the National Avenue corridor. The program is designed to help businesses make necessary improvements for accessibility, fire systems, and other compliance updates.
