OPEN STOREFRONT MAKEOVER PROGRAM

[DONATE TO OUR GOFUND ME PAGE BELOW]

The Open Storefront Makeover Program will assist to beautify vacant, occupied and neglected storefronts by connecting neighborhood businesses and property owners with local artists, developers, organizations, and universities to collaborate on design and storefront improvements.

Locally owned and operated businesses are the heartbeat of a community acting as a social touchstone open to all members of a community. Our goal, to boost economic activity in our community, to encourage public and private investment and to improve the appearance of individual buildings along Fillmore Avenue in the Broadway Fillmore and Martin Luther King communities.

* The program is open to any property owner or store proprietor/tenant with lease authority or authorization from the owner within the Fillmore Forward target area. The Storefront Makeover Program will cover up to $2500 of the cost of each project. This is a matching-grant program, which requires applicants to commit at least 10% of the total project and Fillmore Forward covers the balance of the cost provided a review of the work before payment is committed. 

Simply put, if you've got an idea to improve how your storefront looks from the street, we'd love to hear from you! Contact us by emailing fillmoreforward@gmail.com or by calling 716.436.4896
