Apply For Small Business Improvement Funds In March

Businesses located in the area covered by the Lawrence/Broadway TIF (see map here) are invited to apply for funding to make permanent structural upgrades to their businesses and buildings. The application period is March 1st through the 30th. According to Uptown United, "up to 75% of the cost of the project costs are eligible for rebate." Applications and more information is here.


  1. Someone please enlist the Ace hardware store on Broadway under the tracks. They so need a renovation and I say this because I want them to stay and keep succeeding!

    1. I second this! I've found many items in the Ace that I couldn't find at Home Depot. Maybe, let's hope, they move into the new renovated stores across the street, or in the new CTA station. But yes, they need a rehab desperately.
