The City-Wide White Box program is designed to provide targeted financial incentives to increase the vitality of the neighborhood commercial corridors. The funds will assist in recruiting new businesses to vacant commercial/retail tenant spaces in commercial buildings.
The City Wide White Box program will make available a new business development incentive to commercial building owners and developers. This incentive will offer reimbursable grant funds up to $10 per square foot with a maximum grant in the amount of $25,000. The grant may not exceed 50% of the total white-box project costs.
Business and commercial building owners will continue to be eligible for City Wide Façade and Retail Investment Fund grants. However, as noted below, there are restrictions on using these programs in combination.
