Rockdale businesses have the opportunity to apply for grant money for improvements through the Facade Improvement Incentive program.
Business owners can apply with the Rockdale Municipal Development District. The city says it's an effort to promote local business.
"We have found that one of the really important things that businesses and people consider when locating to the community is one the appearance of the community obviously recreational amenities, schools and other things are very important but do you like the appearance of where you live," said Tom Manskey with the Rockdale Municipal Development District.
Organizers hope to start the grant approval process in the next few weeks. There is a total of $30,000 to fund the new program.
