These programs have been designed to assist local businesses and improve the overall appearance of the Midtown District.


The Power Washing Program offers merchants a maximum grant of $500 for the cleaning and washing of stores signs, storefronts, awnings, and the removal of second floor graffiti in the Midtown District. This program is easy to apply for, just contact the SID office at 908.355.9600 and we’ll do the rest.


The Sign and Façade Program is designed to assist business owners in improving the overall look of their stores, for example, signs, awnings, and store front, helping them with grant monies, an bringing their businesses up to city ordinance. Each business can obtain a grant from the SID to contribute to their sign and façade needs. Due to limited funds, merchants are encouraged to make an appointment today at the SID office, 908.355.9600, to discuss the program.
