The City of Escondido’s Façade and Property Improvement grant program has awarded over $1 million to business property owners since its start almost 30 years ago. In February, the Escondido City Council approved a new allocation of $100,000 into the program’s budget. Business property owners planning exterior renovations are encouraged to apply. Projects can qualify for up to $25,000 in reimbursed grant funds based on property size and location.

A free information session will be held on Wednesday, April 20, 2016 from 9 – 10 a.m. in the Mitchell Room at Escondido City Hall (201 North Broadway). City economic development staff will provide basic information about the program including eligible improvements, the application process and examples of past projects. Planning division staff will also be in attendance to answer development-related questions.

Seating is limited. Please reserve your seat by contacting Michelle Geller, Management Analyst, mgeller@escondido.org or (760) 839-4587.
