Colcom Foundation is providing $350,000 for improving the exterior façade renovations of Downtown buildings as part of the Paris-to-Pittsburgh Façade Grant Program started by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership.

Colcom will match up to $30,000 toward the cost of the renovation, according to the partnership. Costs over $30,000 will be the responsibility of the owner. Through the Colcom grants, 50 projects have been approved and 43 completed, for a total investment in completed projects of $2.05 million, of which $749,852 is grant funds.

The program was initially designed to encourage the activation of outdoor, sidewalk dining at local restaurants, evoking a Parisian atmosphere.
