Call GLDC at 614-294-9600 for more details.


Linden area business owners of 2149 Cleveland Ave. and Custom Cutts at 2689 Cleveland Ave. used their GLDC/CRF Façade Grants in combination with the City’s NCR Façade grants, for new paint, awnings, and windows.

Thanks to generous support from the Columbus Realtors Foundation (formerly the Columbus Board of Realtors), Greater Linden Development Corporation offer’s a matching mini-grant (up to $1,000) to businesses along Linden’s commercial corridors that make repairs or renovations to the exterior of their businesses. Qualifying repairs and renovations can include new windows, awnings, signage, painting, lighting, fencing, paving and more. 

The application process is short and simple, and GLDC staff will guide applicants through each phase of the process.  At least three bids from qualified contractors must be obtained.   All necessary permits must be pulled and City regulations followed.  The grant payment is issued after the work is completed and evidence of the grantee’s matching payment is provided.

Neighborhood Commercial Revitalization - Façade Grant

For larger projects, GLDC’s mini-grant can sometimes be combined with the City’s Neighborhood Commercial Revitalization (NCR) Façade Grant (up to $3,000 per storefront).   Please note: For the City’s NCR grant, the application must be submitted and approved BEFORE any work begins.

Call GLDC at 294-9600 for more information or to request an application.
