The City of Fort Pierce Launches FPRA Commercial Façade Grant
The City of Fort Pierce announced the launch of the Fort Pierce Redevelopment Agency (FPRA) Commercial Façade Grant. The pre-application period is now open until November 24, 2021. The intent of the Commercial Façade Grant Program is to support the revitalization of the commercial corridors in the FPRA district by stimulating private investment in improvements that enhance the appearance of buildings and properties and eliminate blight and non-conforming design standards. This program is designed to encourage redevelopment of the FPRA by enhancing its visual aesthetics which will lead to increased property values, tenant occupancy, economic development, and job creation.
The grant is a reimbursable dollar-for-dollar matching grant up to $25,000. To be eligible the building must be located within the FPRA District and be commercially zoned. To apply and for a complete list of eligibility requirements, please visit:
