Commercial District Program

For commercial property owners, we offer grants up to $50,000 for improvements intended to significantly improve the appearance of the building.


  • Owners must contribute a minimum of 15% of the project costs.
  • Taxes must be current.
  • Although owners have input into the scope of work, Broadway Fillmore NHS makes the final determination on what is a sufficient scope of work to qualify for the grant.
  • There is a five-year maintenance declaration that is filed with the Erie County Clerk.

Target Areas for the Program:  We operate two programs:

  • Broadway Fillmore – Broadway between Reed Street and Memorial Drive; & Fillmore between Sycamore and Paderewski.
  • MLK Neighborhood – Fillmore between North Parade & East Ferry.
