Economic Development - Business Assistance

Glendale Business Assistance Program

Glendale’s Economic Development Department provides a wide range of services to existing, new and expanding businesses. Whether a Fortune 500 company or a small business, we want you to be successful in Glendale.

  • Site Selection and Development Review – We can assist in finding the right location in Glendale and will serve as your liaison through the city development review processes. We customize our information packets to meet your specific needs.

  • Visual Improvement Program (VIP) – A City of Glendale program designed to partially reimburse property owners for making exterior improvements to their retail, commercial, or industrial property. Click here for more details.  Based on a new state court ruling, general fund monies can no longer be used to fund this grant program. However, program funding is currently available through federal Community Development Block Grants but is limited to only businesses/properties located within the city’s designated Redevelopment Area (43rd to 67th Avenues, from Maryland to Orangewood).
