Façade Improvement Grant Program

The objective of the Façade Improvement Grant (FIG) program is to restore, sustain, and improve commercial properties located within the City of Newport News. The FIG program provides matching grant funds, up to a maximum of $30,000, to assist with eligible façade improvements on properties citywide that are used for commercial, industrial, office or mixed-use purposes. A FIG may assist in financing the cost of eligible façade improvements such as:
  • Awning installation
  • Exterior lighting
  • Hardscape improvements
  • Signage and more
