Exterior painting, stucco, brick, awnings and other public facing improvements
Sign repair or replacement

Consideration for grants is based on an evaluation process that looks at the prominence and visibility of a business or property, location within a targeted city planning area and any public safety issues, among other criteria.
The deadline to apply is Jan. 31 with applications considered in February.
