GROW MONMOUTH program information:
Grow Monmouth Façade Improvement Program
The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders announced
the Grow Monmouth Façade Improvement Program in August 2013. Businesses in HUD
eligible areas (eligible areas are indicated in pink on the attached maps) can
apply for a grant of up to $1,850 for a facade upgrade such as a new awning,
paint, door or sign. There are no matching funds required, and the total
project cost cannot exceed $1,850. The program's application/guideline/checklist are available online.
The program uses HUD Community Development Block Grant funds
to help improve the look of privately held commercial buildings that are
located in eligible areas to. A total of $85,000 has been set aside for this
program. HUD eligible areas include all or part of 26 of the county’s
municipalities. Asbury Park, Long Branch and Middletown businesses are
not eligible for this program as those municipalities receive designated HUD
Community Development Block Grants directly.
At this time, all monies have been allocated, but we are
taking applications on our waiting list.
