Business Façade Improvement Program

The Tangletown Neighborhood Association Business Façade Improvement program will provide up to $1,000 in matching funds to individual Tangletown neighborhood businesses for improving the appearance of their building façades. These funds are in the form of a grant which, unlike a loan, does not need to be repaid.

We recognize that healthy neighborhood businesses play an important role in the vitality of the neighborhood community. The goal of this program is to help revitalize and sustain neighborhood businesses by providing incentives to improve the appearance of building façades and to stimulate private investment.

Please see the materials below for details of this program. Upon request, we will provide you with a brochure with ideas for façade improvements.

In addition, the City of Minneapolis provides low-interest loans to small businesses for improvements to the building interior and system improvements that are not eligible for façade matching grants. Southwest Business Association also offers business grants, which can be combined with Tangletown’s program.

Feel free to contact the TNA Board if you have any questions regarding the information contained in the links below at or 612-321-8621. Please note that the grants are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
