What is the City of Littleton Revitalization Incentive Grant (RIG)?
The RIG is an incredible opportunity to make improvements to your business or commercial property with funding assistance! The goal of this program is to encourage private investment in improvements to business storefronts in a way that makes revitalization efforts affordable, creative, and improves the aesthetic of the entire community.
Littleton City Council approved $100,000 for the 2023 RIG to be administered by the Economic Development Department. RIG applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis from owners of commercial properties as well as business owners occupying commercial spaces and offers up to $20,000 in matching funds for qualifying projects. Larger projects with extensive renovations may be considered at a higher total award.
Additionally, the city will provide local bonus funding to applicants using a contractor located and licensed in the City of Littleton. The applicant must verify local contractors through the Economic Development Department. Upon providing proof that a licensed City of Littleton contractor performed the work, the RIG will be increased by 5% in the category in which the local contractor operated.
