Attention: Business Owners!

The Community Redevelopment Agency has re-authorized the Commercial Building Façade & Site Improvement Grant Program, effective October 2017. Certain qualifying properties within the Redevelopment Area are eligible to apply for grant funding.


Minor Home Improvement Grant Program

In an effort to revitalize and further invest into the Community Redevelopment Area, the Live Oak Community Redevelopment Agency has developed a comprehensive program of financial incentives and initiatives geared towards aiding homeowners in the development of their house and property.


Business Startup Grant Program


In a continued effort to revitalize and further invest into the Community Redevelopment Area, and in conformance to Part VIII, subsection iv of the adopted CRA Plan 2039, the Live Oak CRA has developed a comprehensive program of financial incentives geared towards the development and establishment of new, relocating, and returning businesses.  This grant program, for qualifying business-related properties, has been designed to offer commercial property owners, business owners, and possible tenants the opportunity to make physical improvements to the inside of vacant and/or underutilized spaces and properties within the CRA district, and to encourage the reuse and improved functionality of these spaces.  This opportunity is aimed to fill these vacant and underutilized spaces and improve the overall environment of the commercial corridor, with the goal of fostering renewed interest in opening and operating businesses within the CRA district.


Grant funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Funding for the incentives are provided primarily through the CRA TIF Trust Funds, and grant funds are distributed through reimbursement after the project’s completion. Eligibility will be determined based on information provided in and with the applicant’s submission. Applications may be submitted in-person or via email or fax.
The information brochures for these programs are available for download on the right.  To schedule a grant application appointment for either program, please contact:
