MLK Residential Façade Improvement Grant

ATTENTION: New Applications are not being accepted at this time. If you are interested in applying for this program in the future if additional funding becomes available, please contact our staff at so that we can add you to our contact list.

The purpose of the Norwalk Redevelopment Agency's MLK Residential Façade Improvement Grant is to provide exterior façade design and/or construction assistance to eligible projects located within the MLK Drive Corridor.

To determine if your property is located within the MLK Drive Corridor eligibility area, please search the property address using the Eligibility Area Map Tool.

Lastly, ensure that your proposed façade improvement project complies with the MLK Residential Façade Improvement Grant's Guidelines. A majority of the occupants of the residential property must meet the income eligibility requirements of the program (see page 4 of the Guidelines). 

If your property is located within the eligibility area and your proposed work is in compliance with the Guidelines, please fill out an application and email it to the Agency's staff at or mail it to Norwalk Redevelopment Agency, 3 Belden Avenue, Norwalk CT 06850. Please submit questions by email or by calling (203) 854-7810.

To determine if you are current with your property's municipal taxes from the City of Norwalk, check the City's Tax Collector website.

In order to show the ownership of your property, please consult the City of Norwalk's Land Records and Property Tax Assessor websites.

Grant funding is only available for exterior façade work that is visible from public ways. If you would like to do a full exterior and/or interior renovation, please consider applying, either jointly or separately, to the City of Norwalk's Residential Improvement Fund.

Note: If your property is located within the South Norwalk TOD Redevelopment Plan area, your project must also comply with the Design Guidelines in the appendix of that Plan.
