The Small Business and Community Development team identifies financial incentives in the form of grants and loans to help support Hartford's entrepreneurs.
Most commonly, the division administers façade improvement programs which incentivize property owners to improve the exterior appearance of their commercial buildings and storefronts. Storefront improvements are essential to the success of our local business communities! They revitalize the pedestrian environment, attract customers, and encourage additional neighborhood economic investment. The team may also be available to provide design assistance to help ensure that modifications comply with zoning or historic district guidelines.
