The Historic Waterfront Assoc. Facade Improvement Grant assist in costs of improvements to downtown commercial buildings.
Who is eligible: All members of the Coupeville Waterfront Association owning buildings within the HISTORIC catchment area of downtown Coupeville can apply for a Facade Grant. Tenant applicants would go through their landlord FIRST and provide written evidence the property owner is on board with any projects. Property owners must approve final plans and our assistance grant.
Our Facade Grants SHARE the costs of planned facade improvements with the property owner. Percentage of our share varies with each project.
