All applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. The intention of this grant is for businesses to work with the DDA Board and Design Committee BEFORE
erecting any new signage onto their building, therefore please allow for at least two months before being awarded any grant funding. All signs are still subject to the City's Sign Ordinance, and must be approved by the Building Department prior to receiving consideration from the DDA Board for a Sign Grant.Facade Grant
The City of Lathrup Village Downtown Development Authority has established a competitive Façade Grant Program to incentivize redevelopment throughout its commercial corridors. Work which qualifies for assistance includes improvements to the exterior of a building within the DDA District which are visible from the public right-of-way. Funded construction should enhance the built environment of Lathrup Village and achieve the high standards desired in the DDA area. A façade is the most prominent visual element in a downtown and is the primary way in which businesses attract customers. Given that over 50,000 cars drive along Southfield Road every day, it is imperative that the commercial district communicates a look and feel of quality.
