The Storefront Renovation Program assists targeted neighborhood retail districts in becoming attractive, economically viable, and diverse places to shop. The program helps fund the rehabilitation/renovation of (primarily) traditional storefront building exteriors including:
Bringing them into Building Code compliance
Correction of maintenance items and code violations
Renovation of architectural/historic details
Design and installation of new signage
The Storefront Program offers financial incentives (rebate or loan) combined with free City design assistance to applicants considering an exterior rehabilitation of a commercial structure. To better meet these objectives, the City partners with neighborhood Community Development Corporations.
Every Spring the Storefront Rebate Program applicants who have successfully completed projects in the previous calendar year are invited to a Storefront Program Awards event and recognized by Mayor Jackson for their achievement and investment in Cleveland’s neighborhood retail districts. Over 150 people attend this much-anticipated event each year.
