Façade Rehabilitation Grant

Call it superficial but when it comes to doing business, beauty and profit start outside your front door. There is no denying that first impressions do really count. What your customers and potential customers see when they look at your business can make or break those potential sales. Growing and maintaining any type of business can be challenging and that is the purpose of this program- to help you put your best front forward.

The program is intended to:

  • Make our streets more inviting and interesting to walk and shop
  • Help building owners attract and retain tenants
  • Build civic pride among the community
  • Contribute to the quality of life of our residents, workers and visitors
  • Promote the marketability of our business area

Grants are available for exterior improvements only and may be used to improve the front or side of the building provided the façade faces a public street. The amount of the match will be determined by the Façade Grant Review Committee based on the funds available and number of requests considered. The money is a grant, not a loan. Money is available until depleted and runs from July 1, 2018 to May 31, 2019.
