Independent businesses located within the CRA may be eligible to apply for the CRA Facade Grant Program for improvements such as exterior lighting, landscaping, benches, bicycle racks, and public art, as well as entrances, windows, and ADA compliance. Homeowners within the CRA who have a Homestead Exemption and who meet income eligibility requirements may apply for grant assistance for improvements to the appearance and accessibility of their homes.
