Tomball EDC Announces Old Town Façade Improvement Grant Program

TOMBALL, TEXAS (December 4, 2019) – The Tomball Economic Development Corporation (TEDC) released details of a new program designed to enhance the overall commercial character of the heart of Tomball. The Old Town Façade Improvement Grant Program will offer matching grant funds to assist significant renovations in the Old Town Business District. 
 
The new program extends reimbursements beyond façade improvements. The TEDC plans to reimburse eligible participants 50 percent of their investment, up to $50,000, for restoration and revitalization of building structures that complement a significant overall façade enhancement. Eligible commercial property and business owners in the Old Town Business District may apply for the grants directly through the TEDC.  
 
“We are excited and proud to announce the Old Town Façade Improvement Grant Program, which can assist business owners who want to improve store fronts yet find that an upgrade requires additional infrastructure costs to do it right,” said TEDC Executive Director, Kelly Violette. “We now have an incentive that can help Old Town businesses offset related infrastructure costs.” 
 
Eligible exterior improvements include, but are not limited to, façade rehabilitation, exterior painting resulting in a major visual change, enhanced exterior building lighting, and attached signage. Eligible interior improvements include ADA compliance improvements, new flooring, and new windows and doors, among other qualified upgrades. 
 
 “Old Town Tomball has much to offer in the way of history, character, and accessibility.  This program is the next step toward ensuring that Old Town Tomball continues to thrive as a hub for residents and visitors alike,” Violette added.
 
Further program details can be found by visiting TomballTXEDC.org.
