Eligible improvements include, but are not limited to: facade restoration, window/door repair or replacement, masonry, awnings, signage, exterior lighting, painting, building additions, new roof and landscaping.

Applications should be made through one of the participating banks. The loan will be approved according to the credit standards of the lending institution.
