The Greenville County Redevelopment Authority has developed a new Façade Improvement Grant Program to encourage improvement and investment to the overall revitalization of Central Business Districts in the five cooperating municipalities - namely, Fountain Inn, Greer, Mauldin, Simpsonville, and Travelers Rest - and within the unincorporated areas of the County. However, the fund is not available to businesses along commercial corridors within the City of Greenville. This program provides up to $5,000 in grant funds to finance exterior improvements to a property owner or tenant's commercial building that will be aesthetically pleasing and complimentary to local design guidelines or concepts acceptable to the respective municipality. The program is designed to retain and attract businesses, strengthen the Central Business Districts, increase utilization of downtown buildings, restore economic vitality and enhance property values. The program is a reimbursement program and shall be administered on a first come first served basis, to the limit of available funding and in accordance with each municipality's appropriated funds for the fiscal year.
