|A chance for Prince Rupert commercial property owners to |
add to the visuals of their building is available once again
through the City of Prince Rupert Business Facade program
The City of Prince Rupert is looking to help some business and commercial property owners spruce up their appearance once again, with the City announcing another year of funding ahead for the 2022 Business Façade Improvement program.
The program which has been used by a number of businesses over the last few years provides funding for local business in specific commercial areas to complete exterior improvements and serves to support the City's goals for downtown revitalization and beautification.
The program is funded by a 20,000 dollar grand from Northern Development Initiative Trust which has been the driving force of the program since it was created. The program provides a 50% reimbursement grant up to a maximum of $5,000 per building/project to improve existing building facades.
Successful applicants will receive financial assistance in the form of a non- repayable grant, for eligible projects upon completion.“Over the years this program has been operating, we have been able to see some real tangible upgrades to our streetscape through the businesses who have participated. We are grateful to NDIT to continuing to offer these funds to support small businesses in our community.” -- Paul Vendittelli, Economic Development Officer.
