The Local Initiatives Support Corporation – Indianapolis (LISC) has announced the first Small Business Façade and Property Improvement Program grant round for 2022. The program provides funds to property and small business owners who are interested in renovating the front exterior of their structures. The rebate program requires business and/or property owners to submit invoices for the costs of completed work in order to receive reimbursement for up to 90% of the cost of the project. Grant amounts range from $1,000 to $20,000. While any commercial property in Indianapolis/Marion County is eligible, priority will be given to applicants located in LISC neighborhoods, with a focus on minority-owned businesses or properties.
