Facade Grant

The City of St. Charles is proud to announce the relaunch of the Façade Grant Program.

City Council has allocated $100,000 for the program this year. The allocation will be divided equally between four quarters in January, April, July and October. Applications for the second quarter will be accepted beginning April 1 at 8 a.m. and will be open for ten days. Façade grants are now competitive and not based on the order in which they were submitted. Applications will be reviewed and awarded by the Department of Community Development based on their merit and benefit to the city. This year the program will be eligible citywide for owner occupied residential structures that are at least 40 years old and commercial structures that are at least 65 years old. Façade grants will be awarded up to 50% of the total cost of a project not to exceed $5,000 for residential structures and $12,500 for commercial structures. Residential grants must be used for external improvements only. Commercial façade grants can be used for exterior and interior improvements.
