The Frankfort Avenue Business Association (FABA) is a non-profit organization that exists to enhance Frankfort Avenue as a place to do business. We work to stimulate economic development along the business corridor while developing and implementing marketing activities that promote and improve the business climate.

FABA acts as a unifying force and an advocate for solutions when issues emerge in the community, and supports the work of the neighborhood associations and charitable organizations. We help keep Frankfort Avenue looking its best through beautification programs, graffiti eradication, and landscaping maintenance.  

The Association has been the backbone of the positive change that has made Historic Frankfort Avenue such a vibrant area.
