In order to increase interest in re-use of existing buildings and to help recruit new businesses and services in Breckenridge, the Breckenridge Economic Development Corporation provides financial incentives for owners to make exterior improvements to buildings through the Façade Grant Program.
The Façade Grant Program provides awards for exterior improvements to buildings within the city limits. Eligible improvements include: store signage, lighting, awnings, windows, building fronts, entries, planters and other expenditures as defined by the Breckenridge Economic Development Corporation. The Façade Grant Program is a reimbursement program. All awards shall be retained pending completion and inspection of the project.
Grants are available for 50% reimbursement up to $5,000. Grant amounts will depend upon funding availability.
Meet with the BEDC to view the proposed project and discuss preliminary plans. Permits for any permanent signage must be secured from the City.
* For properties located within the Downtown District, applications will be made to the Breckenridge Downtown Development Council (BDDC).
