Downtown Façade Improvement Grant Program
*City of Laredo is currently no longer accepting new applications for this program*
Through the cooperation of the City of Laredo and Laredo Main Street, the Downtown Façade Improvement Grant Program was created to rekindle interest in Downtown Laredo. The City of Laredo will provide up to $25,000 in grant funds through this grant opportunity to commercial property owners and business owners in the Laredo Main Street District, Arts and Entertainment District, and Central Business District to encourage restoration of building facades and to enhance the buildings overall exterior appearance.
A maximum of $15,000 is available for use on the front/main façade and for corner properties an additional $10,000 for a total grant amount of $25,000. Business owners will only be required to match up to $500 investment. No Money shall be paid by the City of Laredo upon any claim, debt, demand, or account whatsoever, to any person, form or corporation who is in arrears to the City of Laredo for taxes.
The grants are funded by the City of Laredo Community Development Department using Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. The funding is made possible through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
