Facade Grant Program
Downtown Petoskey is an exciting and vibrant business district, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Our commitment to maintaining, preserving, and embracing this reputation is demonstrated by the work being done by the City of Petoskey’s Downtown Management Board that oversees a full schedule of events and downtown programs.
The Façade Improvement Grant Program provides financial assistance to property owners or tenants seeking to renovate or restore commercial building exteriors. This program is intended to improve the physical appearance of businesses and enhance Downtown Petoskey. Grant funds are made available through the Parking Fund which is administered by the Downtown Management Board (DMB).
This physical improvement grant provides a matching grant for facades. For every dollar that is awarded, the applicant must spend a minimum of a dollar. It is a competitive grant program. Individual grant amounts will be up to 50% of the project cost estimate or actual project cost, whichever is less. $20,000 is allocated to be awarded in the 2018 DMB Parking Fund budget.
