An investment in the businesses that call Mundelein “home” is an investment in the economic growth, prosperity, and overall quality-of-life of the entire community. To help revitalize Mundelein, the Village has established a $100,000 Business Incentive Grant (BIG) Program to help business owners improve and beautify their property. All business properties in the Village are eligible to apply for grant funds.
$100,000 is a Very BIG Deal.
The Mundelein Village Board of Trustees has budgeted $100,000 for business and property owners to use to improve Mundelein’s business climate and the overall look of our community.
This BIG program gives businesses the opportunity to partner with the Village for matching funds. It’s a Win for Business…a Win for Mundelein!
The BIG Idea
Mundelein’s BIG Program provides matching funds to enhance and/or beautify businesses in the Village. All work and participation in the program must be pre-approved by the Village. This is an incentive program for ongoing community revitalization. The intent is to promote a healthy business environment and increase the overall aesthetic experience in the Village of Mundelein.
Business and property owners also can qualify for grant funds to replace signage and to replace existing non-conforming signs in order to ensure signage is in compliance with Mundelein’s new Sign Code. Grant funds also can be used to make improvements to the facade and exterior appearance of existing buildings.
