Valdez Beautification Matching Grant Program's mission is to work to build community, a sense of place, and civic pride through funding beautification projects focused on the aesthetics of Valdez, including but not limited to design, landscaping, and public art. 

The Valdez Beautification Matching Grant Program offers a financial incentive designed to assist local businesses or commercial property owners in improving the business setting for investors as well as providing an overall upgrade in appearance for residents and visitors. 

2024 will be the ninth year of the program and continues with the expansion of eligible properties outside the core downtown district. The 2024 matching grant program’s goal is to improve the overall aesthetics of Valdez through:

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