JEDCO is actively and consistently working to help businesses and commercial property owners make improvements with facade, demolition, and downtown revitalization grants. Funding provided by one of the matching grants can drastically transform the look and feel of an existing business and create a more inviting and revitalized experience for the customer.

Since its inception in 2017, the Operation Facelift matching grant program has encouraged owners to reinvest in their buildings and property by defraying the cost of improvements.

The Matching Grant Program provides funding for four project types:

  • Facade Program (matching grant): provides up to $5,000 for exterior improvements to commercial structures.
