To achieve revitalization goals, the DIA provides numerous resources to developers and those looking to invest Downtown. In addition to administering development and redevelopment agreements, allocating development rights, creating public/private partnerships, and providing enhanced public amenities, the DIA provides many program-specific incentives, including: commercial lease and job creation incentives, retail build-out incentives, residential incentives, incentives for preservation and revitalization of historic structures, storefront facade grants, sidewalk café grants, and more!
Please note: interested applicants must complete an application form, project pro-forma and project proﬁle assessment form (together with any other ﬁnancial information requested by DIA and reasonably necessary to evaluate ﬁnancial gap or need and the accuracy of construction costs, ﬁnancing commitments, etc.) and submit all to the DIA for staff review and evaluation.
