Neighborhood Business Improvement Program (NBIP) aka Façade

Program Introduction

The Neighborhood Business Improvement Program (NBIP) is one of the resources offered by Salt Lake City’s Housing Stability Division to strengthen the City’s neighborhoods. Housing Stability utilizes federal funding to support local for-profit businesses by offering up to $50,000 in grants to improve their façades. Increasing the street appeal of properties positively affects the surrounding neighborhoods and boosts the economy on a local level.

Eligibility requirements include, but are not limited to:

1) Applicants must have a for-profit commercial building with a facade visible from the street. Preference is given to applicants who are Minority, Woman, or Veteran-Owned, that are applying to make ADA accommodations, and to small and local businesses.

2) The building must be located within Salt Lake City’s NBIP’s Target Area. Projects on both sides of the street are eligible. Neighborhoods include Rose Park, Fairpark, Jordan Meadows, Poplar Grove, Downtown, Central 9th, Ballpark, Central City, Liberty Wells, and Glendale.
