ST. PETERSBURG — The city is accepting applications for its Commercial Revitalization Program. The city has allocated $175,000 for the program this year.
The grants are matching, and are awarded for work on new or existing commercial buildings that improve business districts and decrease vacancy rates. The money is paid out upon a project’s completion.
Eligible businesses must be on certain commercial corridors that are not in downtown or the South St. Petersburg Community Redevelopment Area.
The application cycle opens Monday and runs through Oct. 21. Applicants should visit stpete.org/assistance/incentives for information.
