OPDC is now accepting applications for the 2014 Residential Façade Grant program. The program restores historic character to our neighborhood’s homes, instills pride in our community and catalyzes neighborhood investment.
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.
Last year, OPDC awarded $21,000 in grants. Projects included roof and gutter repairs; painting; walkway and sidewalk repairs; landscaping; porch repairs; window and door replacements; and wall and foundation repairs.
