Commercial Facade Improvement Program

Town of East Hartford

The Town of East Hartford is excited to announce the return of its Commercial Facade Improvement Program.  It will help to beautify downtown and other business districts by assisting property and business owners in repairing and upgrading the appearance of their buildings. The program incentivizes these projects by contributing funds towards these improvements.  The Town will fund 100% of eligible projects up to $2,000 and 75% of costs above $2,000 up to a total contribution of $50,000. All funding is contingent on the availability.  Projects must be located on a major thoroughfare and in a low/moderate income area in order to be eligible. 

Applications are accepted during times when CDBG funding is available for the program.
