The Eight Mile Boulevard Association Facade Improvement Program (FIP) was established in 2008 as a means to encourage aesthetic enhancement and visually unify the corridor by providing financial assistance to businesses and/or property owners located on Eight Mile Road. FIP leverages financial assistance and design expertise to fuel transformative investment and promote a higher standard of property design and maintenance throughout the corridor.  8MBA strives to serve as a model for other corridors, communities and districts in the region.

As part of the program, the Eight Mile Boulevard Association acts as a grant administrating body and works directly with successful applicants to achieve a more unified and pleasing environment throughout the corridor.
