As of September 2016 Pembroke has launched it's Community Improvement Plan (CIP). A Community Improvement Plan is a tool used by municipalities to assist in community revitalization and achieving economic, community planning, and urban development goals through encouraging private-sector investment.
The City offers 11 grant programs through the CIP which range in dollar value, and project type. Most grants are focused on commercial, industrial, or multi-use developments and buildings, with 1 grant focusing on downtown upper-tier residential development.
