The Jersey County Business Association is excited to announce that it will begin a Façade Improvement Grant (FIG) for its membership.


Starting September 1st, JCBA members will be able to apply for a matching grant of up to $1000 to improve the front or rear façade of their buildings. The JCBA has set aside $2000 for the FIG in 2020 and hopes to double that in 2021.
