About the Program

The DBCRA Commercial Property Improvement Grant Program is an incentive program available to businesses located within the CRA along US-1/Federal Highway and Dania Beach Blvd from SW 5th Avenue to Gulfstream Road.  The purpose is to substantially improve the visible appearance and street presence of properties as well as enhance the functionality of businesses with the DBCRA.

Through this program the DBCRA may provide grants up to $20,000 based on the Funding Guidelines below.  All grant recipients are required to provide a minimum 30% match for the project. The Commercial Property Improvement Grant Program is subject to funding availability and will expire September 30, 2017 unless otherwise authorized by the DBCRA Board.  All applications will be scored based on specific criteria and in the event that multiple completed applications are received within a 30 day window, the highest scoring applications shall prevail.
