Downtown Facade Improvement Program

Downtown Waxhaw Facade Improvement Program Grant Information 

Did you know that all business and some historic homes (homes built between 1888 & 1941) that are located in the Façade Improvement Grant boundary, are eligible to be paid 50% of construction costs for work done to the exterior of your structure? The Town of Waxhaw reimburses up to half of project costs with an approved Façade Improvement Grant! This year we are excited to have $50,000 to allocate to the façade improvement grants! These funds are available now!


In 2010, the Board of Commissioners began setting aside money to aid properties in downtown Waxhaw. Downtown Waxhaw is an asset to the Town and the region, and it is well documented that a vibrant downtown can bring economic benefits to the larger community.

The motivation behind the façade improvement program is to help property owners with projects that may get put off due to budget constraints or other reasons. The hope is this program will spur interest and investment in our downtown so that it will continue to play an integral role in our community.
