Vandalism Repair Rebate Program: The Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce’s Vandalism Repair Rebate Program provides incentives in the form of a rebate for physical repairs to windows and doors of commercial spaces along the public way due to vandalism. The goal of the Vandalism Repair Rebate Program is to ensure that the Lincoln Avenue Special Service Area (SSA) district is not mired by broken or boarded up windows, and that businesses can receive financial assistance if vandalism occurs.
