Grants of up to $50,000 to Portland Region, Oregon businesses and property owners to defray the cost of improving storefronts in eligible districts. All types of storefront renovations that directly improve the façades of buildings facing streets, sidewalks, and public areas are eligible.
Eligible projects include windows, entryways, signage and lighting, awnings and canopies, cornices, gutters and downspouts, as well as painting, finishing and detailing façade surfaces. Design costs, permits and fees associated with the implementation of these improvements are also eligible project expenses.
Structural upgrades, accessibility improvements and upgrades to heating, ventilation and air conditioning may be eligible expenses if storefront improvements necessitate modifications to existing conditions. Limited permanent interior improvements such as floorings, ceilings, interior lighting and accessibility may also be eligible, if part of a larger project involving significant exterior upgrades.
A key component of the Enterprising Places program is to provide professional design expertise. Enlisting experienced professionals enables business and property owners to invest wisely and maximize the effectiveness of building improvements.
