Council to seek funding for another year of Business facade grants

City Council has approved a request
to seek funding for another year of
the business facade program
Business owners in Prince Rupert may soon be able to access some funding to help defray the cost of some work on the front of their commercial space, with the City of Prince Rupert to seek funding from a program hosted by the Northern Development Initiative Trust.

At Monday's City Council session, the City's Financial Officer Corinne Bomben sat in for the Economic Development officer, outlining the nature of the city's funding quest, which will see the City look to access the 20,000 dollars that is currently available.

If secured, the program would be administered by the Economic Development Office on behalf of the City of Prince Rupert and would be used to help local businesses or property owners to get some of the money back on any facade improvements that they may make to provide for a more visual impact for their establishments.

You can review some of the program motes from the City's Agenda from Monday on page 5.

Northern Development Initiative Trust offers more background to their funding program here.

The presentation to Council to seek permission to apply for the grant, which they voted to approve, can be be viewed from the City's Video Archive at the one minute mark.
