Jerome-Gun Hill Bid Facade Improvement Grants

The Jerome-Gun Hill Business Improvement District (BID) has created a Facade Improvement Program that provides matching grants of up to maximum $4,000 to help local merchants improve the external look of their business including gates, canopies, and lighting. The BID also offers up to an additional $2,500 for the installation of security camera(s) and systems that can be directly connected to the BID’s new high-tech Security Camera System. Renovations can range from the simple replacement of a store sign or awning to the complete restoration of the entire storefront (also includes pointing of bricks and steam cleaning) and/or the installation of security related equipment.

The purpose of the program is to help merchants in improve the look of your individual business while improving the overall aesthetic quality of the entire BID district. This unique grant program will award qualifying business owners 50% of the total cost of storefront renovations up to a maximum $4,000 grant and 50% of the total cost of the installation of the security camera(s) up to a maximum $2,500 grant.

The Facade Improvement Program is funded through generous grants from the NYC Department of Small Business Services, New York State Senator Efrain Gonzalez and the Jerome-Gun Hill Business Improvement District.
