Façade Improvement Program Application Due Date is March 1, 2016

The City of Marinette is requesting applications for the annual Façade Improvement Program (FIP). The program provides financial assistance to commercial property owners in the downtown area to rehabilitate the exteriors of their properties. Assistance is designed to enhance the historical character of the downtown area by providing financial incentives to property owners seeking to restore some of the historic character to their properties.

The City’s financial participation shall be limited to 50% of the rehabilitation costs up to a maximum grant of $7,500.00 per project ($15,000.00 total project cost). Property owners may receive such assistance from the City once in a three-year period. Awards for assistance under the program are made based on eligibility and available funding from the Downtown Development Fund. The Downtown Development Fund derives its money from various downtown property leases and does not use general property tax dollars to fund the program. Funds may only be used for exterior repairs or improvements.

Eligible Improvements:

Repair to building exterior facades including front, rear and side facades.

Ineligible Improvements:

Interior improvements
