Power of One


Created to support small businesses in urban commercial corridors, the Power of One program provides small businesses access to design assistance and funding for exterior improvements. To assist eligible businesses, the NDC helps clients explore creative design approaches that can be implemented for a high impact.

Improvements include lighting, signage, awnings, public art, landscape enhancements, and furnishings to increase the business’s visibility and sustainability in the communities they serve. The program creates opportunities for community ownership and authentic placemaking by engaging NDC staff, volunteer networks, and the businesses themselves to implement the work.
