Santa Rosa Improvement Vitalization Enterprise

Santa Rosa County has developed a new grant program designed to help ease some of the financial burden of updating the facade or signage of your small business. If you are a small business owner anywhere in Santa Rosa County, you may be eligible for grant funds up to $5,000 for facade improvements, including signage.

The StRIVE grant program is funded by the economic development portion of the electric franchise fee.
