Our vision for more vibrant street-level businesses continues with the next phase of the Vibrant Spaces℠ program.
The Downtown Norfolk Council awards matching grants to both new and existing businesses that create a vibrant Downtown. Submit your best, most exciting ideas to help define the neighborhood and activate your space and if selected, we’ll cover up to 50% of your project costs, up to $10,000 per business.
What's eligible for a Vibrancy Grant? In the past, the DNC has funded outdoor dining furniture, exterior lighting, unique business signage, roll-up garage doors, planters, storefront window displays and other exterior enhancements. For examples of past awards and the businesses that received funding, please visit Vibrant Spaces.
