Uptown SSA Emergency Storefront Rebate Program

In a response damage at Uptown businesses, the Uptown Special Service Area (SSA) has expanded its Security and Curb Appeal Rebate Programs into an Emergency Storefront Rebate Program. The Emergency Storefront Rebate Program includes rebates for window boarding services, shatter resistant window film, and window replacement. Emergency Storefront Rebates will be offered for up to 50% of the cost incurred, up to $500 per business. This program allows businesses to undertake any of these measures immediately and not require approval in advance as the SSA-funded rebate programs typically require.

If you are interested in this program reach out to Justin Weidl by email at or call Justin at 773-878-1064. Applications are due by 5:00pm on June 10th, 2020.

Applicants will be notified if their application is approved, and at what amount in mid-June. This program has very limited funds available. If we receive more applications than funds are available, we will hold lottery for applicants. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that funds will be available or that your application will be approved.
