Small Business Grants
In 2021, Escondido City Council authorized two grant programs. A facade improvement program aimed at addressing ongoing concerns with the physical appearance of the downtown and commercial areas and a CPTED program aimed at addressing the impacts of illegal homeless encampments and civic disorder.
These grants are funded using Federal money allocated to the City of Escondido through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021. The City Council established these programs to provide matching grants to business and property owners that wish to renovate, enhance, and improve highly visible buildings along core commercial corridors throughout the City. The City recognizes that as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic many businesses have suffered financially and struggled to keep up with or improve their facades. These funds are a way to address some of these challenges and restore vibrancy and further preservation to our community.
