The City of Greenville’s Facade Improvement Program (FIP) provides financial assistance to commercial property owners and business owners in targeted commercial corridors for qualified exterior building and site improvements.

The purpose of the FIP is to support the revitalization of the city’s commercial corridors by stimulating private investment in high-quality improvements that enhance the appearance of buildings and properties and eliminate blight and non-conforming design standards.

Applicants are eligible for a 50% reimbursement on expenses equal to or less than $10,000, and a 20% reimbursement on additional expenses greater than the initial $10,000 spent. The maximum reimbursement is $10,000 per property. For additional expenses above $10,000, the City will reimburse the applicant up to 20% of eligible expenses. The maximum award amount is $10,000.

Applications are reviewed by a committee made up of three City staff members and two members of the Greenville chapter of the American Institute of Architects. All applications must be approved prior to commencement of any work.
