Downtown Rehab and Preservation Grant Program


The City of Newark Development Department announces the availability of grant funds through the Downtown Rehabilitation and Preservation Program. The program is intended to encourage economic development in downtown Newark by assisting local businesses in creating an environment that is aesthetically attractive, functional for conducting business, and respectful of downtown’s historic character. Grants are available to both new and existing businesses and organizations. Proposals that will have a positive effect on the abatement of building deterioration, job creation and retention, and the preservation of historic elements will be viewed most favorably by the City. Grant proposals must be consistent with federal, state, county, and local regulations including zoning, building, health and safety codes. The approval of applications will be determined at the sole discretion of the City of Newark Development Department.
