Since Mayor Tom Henry announced in 2009 the first recipients of the city’s facade grants, at least 92 companies have completed renovations or are in the process of work after receiving grants, leading to at least $5 million in investment, said Mary Tyndall, city of Fort Wayne community development spokeswoman.

Here are some of the results of those improvements with photos provided by the city of Fort Wayne.
