Small Business Tenant Improvement Fund Pilot

  • Does your business provide goods and services that are important to your neighborhood?

  • Does your business have other funding resources and need a final piece of financing to fill the gap?

If you answered yes to these questions, you may qualify for a grant of up to $100,000 to help finance improvements to your commerical space.


In this 2019 Pilot Program, OED has secured funding to provide grants for commercial space improvements to a limited of number of small businesses in neighborhoods where there is a high risk of displacement. Projects will be funded on a rolling basis, meaning that OED will consider applications as they are submitted and will award funds to projects meeting the above criteria until funding is fully disbursed.
