Business Improvement Grant (BIG)

Northglenn businesses located in the urban renewal boundary area can apply for a matching grant of up to $15,000 for exterior improvements.
Business Improvement Grant Application Packet

The program is intended to improve the exterior appearance of buildings and property lots, as well as improve the overall look of the city. All improvements must be visible from the public right of way, and other public areas and parks.

This is a reimbursement matching grant program, which means that the applicant pays a portion of the improvement and NURA pays a portion. The amount of the match must be at least 1:1—the applicant pays $1 and NURA pays $1. However, there is a maximum grant contribution of up to $15,000 or $16,500 if a Northglenn contractor(s) is used. Work completed prior to grant approval is not eligible for funding. Grant funds are disbursed on a reimbursement basis, and cannot be issued until the proposed project has been fully completed.
