Property Improvement Program

The Property Improvement Program (PIP) is a grant program for buildings located in the Hollywood CRA Districts. It provides a 50% reimbursement grant up to $75,000 for comprehensive fixed capital improvements to the property. The intent of the program is to encourage property and business owners to restore, renovate and improve their property, thereby improving the area's visual quality and attractiveness, and increasing property values.

Properties located along the Intracoastal are eligible for up to an additional 50% reimbursement ($50,000 maximum) for dock or seawall repairs or construction.  

(Properties that receive reimbursement for dock or seawall must complete repairs as a part of a larger renovation.)

Eligible Properties

  • Multi-Family properties
  • Condominiums (work on exterior or common areas only)
