MLK Residential Façade Improvement Program

The purpose of the Norwalk Redevelopment Agency's MLK Drive Corridor Residential Façade Improvement Program 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 Program'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 submit it to the Agency's staff digitally at: or mail to: Norwalk Redevelopment Agency, 3 Belden Avenue, Norwalk CT 06850. Please submit questions by email or by calling (203) 854-7810.

Application Deadline: The first round of applications will be reviewed on January 25, 2021. A second round of applications may be accepted and reviewed in the Spring of 2021if funding remains available. 

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 Program.

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.
