Recipients of the 2014 grant are now completing work on their projects. Check back soon for success stories and before/after photos. Due to funding cuts we cannot offer the Facade Grants in 2015 and beyond. We will update this site when we can offer these grants again.
Oakland Planning and Development Corporation (OPDC) partners with homeowners and landlords through our Residential Façade Grant Program to increase social and economic capital in Oakland. The program restores historic character to our neighborhood’s homes, instills pride and strength in our community and catalyzes neighborhood investment and preservation. Façade improvements achieve several benefits, simply by enhancing a building’s exterior appearance. Not only do property values increase at the renovated building, but at adjacent properties as well.
The Façade Grant Program is available to residential property owners in all four neighborhoods of Oakland – Central, North, South and West. With a limit of $5,000 per grant, awardees receive a 1 to 1 match for an owner-occupied building, and a 1 to 2 match for a non-owner-occupied building.
