Historic & Cultural Preservation
The Omni district is a colorful landscape of historic structures that offer invaluable character and a unique sense of place. Omni
CRA works with the Dade Historic Trust, City of Miami and designated historical property owners to save these structures from demolition and disrepair. Through our Historic Preservation Program, property owners can leverage resources of the
CRA to renew historic properties and accomplish mutual goals.
Green Space Initiative
Development cycles and the timeline for major park improvements within the Omni CRA means that there are an unusually high number of vacant parcels, as well as many new residents and visitors looking for places to relax outdoors.
COVID-19 Pandemic has increased this need at in 2021 the Board authorized a Green Space Initiative to improve vacant and blighted lots, to furnish plumbing, electrical, restrooms, and ADA access.
Each grant will also create new jobs and activates areas to improve economic vitality, safety and comfort.
Our Emergency Business Microgrants help local businesses offset the effects of COVID-19.
Our Business Incentive Grant Program helps to cover costs directly related to establishing and expanding business within the district. We offer assistance with improvements such as remedying code violations, providing
ADA access and eliminating blight in targeted areas. Each grant creates new jobs and activates areas to improve economic vitality, safety and comfort. Small business owners are likely to reinvest in their own neighborhood.
