Any new or existing business in the City limits is eligible to apply for grant funding for reimbursement on projects that improve the physical appearance of its business facility.

Types of projects that qualify are: façade improvements, such as painting, reconstruction and remodeling; sign improvements, including new signs or renovations to existing signs; property improvements, such as landscaping, lighting, fencing, sidewalk and driveway improvements, parking lot improvements, and demolition of abandoned signs and structures. Applications will be evaluated by RDC and City staff. Projects that meet the program guidelines will be presented to the RDC Board of Directors and City Council for approval. Applications must be made on a form provided by the RDC, and may be obtained via the Economic Development Department at the Rosenberg Civic Center, 3825 Hwy 36 S, Rosenberg City Hall, 2110 4th Street, or by clicking the links above.
