Facade Grant Program
The Facade Grant Program assists downtown business and property owners with aesthetic improvements and the preservation of historic buildings by offering financial incentives to maintain, repair and improve the physical appearance of the exterior of buildings in Corning's Gaffer District.
During the 2016–2017 fiscal year, we will provide building owners with a special round of facade grant funding.
Sign Design Program
The Sign Design Grant offers new businesses a $500 non-matching grant toward the total cost of signage. This grant is only available to new business owners who utilize the service of Corning's Gaffer District's Design Service for the fabrication and installation of signage.
Visual Merchandising Program
The visual merchandising program provides businesses with a free window-dressing program that incorporates merchandise, signage and professional props to provide an attractive welcome to visitors and customers.
