Grant Programs

The Joliet City Center Partnership seeks to promote a healthy and expanding business climate in the Downtown Core Area. Utilizing revenues from an economic development special service area (SSA), an incentive grant program has been developed to stimulate private investment and to provide a tool for sustaining redevelopment within the Downtown Core.

The goals of the grant programs are to: Encourage business/property owners to expand, rehab, renovate, beautify or upgrade buildings, interior space, and exterior space; bridge financing gap in order for private investors to achieve market reasonable rates of return; facilitate the occupancy of vacant space; attract and retain business activity; increase residential density within the Downtown Core; and foster implementation of the priorities of the Joliet Downtown Plan and the Downtown Special Service Area.
