Façade Improvement Programs

Façade Improvement Programs

The CDC supports neighborhood revitalization by working with residents and businesses in low- and moderate-income areas such as  Florence Firestone, Lennox, East Los Angeles, Walnut Park and other unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County.  Economic development tools, such as the Community Business Revitalization (CBR) Program, provide financial and technical assistance to support business tenants and property owners.  It seeks to help beautify business districts making them more inviting for shoppers and a source of community pride.

The CBR Program is part of a myriad of economic development efforts the CDC is engaged in for the revitalization of neighborhoods. 

CDC programs empower community groups, beautify business districts, stimulate job growth, and facilitates business creation, expansion, retention, and attraction.  In addition, these economic development efforts include streetscape improvements, business incubators, empowerment and enterprise zones, redevelopment, acquisition/relocation of prospective development sites, funding of local area chambers of commerce, creation of business improvement districts, local marketing efforts, commercial and industrial lending, and other programs.
