City of Pickens Facade Improvement Grant
The City of Pickens Facade Improvement Committee is responsible for administering a Facade Improvement Grant Program, intended to stimulate improvements to the exterior of commercial buildings in the Overlay Districts, identified as City Center Overlay District and the Gateway Overlay District.
The City of Pickens Façade Improvement Grant Program (FIGP) provides financial assistance to commercial property owners and business owners in the City Center and Gateway Overlay Districts that qualify for façade improvements. The purpose of the Façade Improvement Program is to support the revitalization of the City’s Overlay Districts by stimulating private investments in high-quality improvements that enhance the appearance of buildings and properties and eliminate blight and non-conforming design standards.
The program provides for a one-time reimbursement. The amount allocated annually by the City Council to this program is limited and will vary year to year. Applications will be funded throughout the year as long as funds are available.
