Small Business Adaptive Reuse Program

This grant program is designed to assist owner-operators in southern Dallas with improvements to under-performing or vacant buildings for new or continued use. Often, these buildings will be transformed from an old original use to a new use (a gas station to a restaurant, for example).

Requirements


A pilot program established in 2014 by Dallas City Council provides reimbursement grants of up to $30,000 to property owners that invest at least $150,000 in private money (acquisition and improvements).

  • At least 51% of the building must be used for the property owner's business;
  • Buildings may not be larger than 10,000 sq. ft..

This program may partner well with the Property Assessed Clean Energy program for green building system improvements.

Applications


Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Please contact staff for more information.
