The City Beautification Commission administers the Valdez Beautification Matching Grant Program. It offers a financial incentive designed to assist local businesses or commercial property owners in providing an overall upgrade in appearance for residents and visitors alike. 

2023 will be the eighth year of the program, and it continues with the expansion of eligible properties outside the core downtown district.

The 2023 matching grant program’s goal is to improve the overall aesthetics of Valdez through:

  • Improving the overall quality of the building/structure façades to attract more residents and visitors to shop, eat, and do business in Valdez.
  • Encouraging businesses to invest in additional aesthetic and design improvements, including landscaping and art.
  • Encouraging and incentivizing property/business owners to reinvest in our community.
  • Encouraging grant applicants to strengthen the local economy by utilizing local vendors, contractors, and materials.

If you have questions about the application process or want to request a paper application, reach out to Deputy City Clerk Elise Sorum-Birk ( or 907-834-3468)
