FCSS Funding

These initiatives must do one of the following:

Façade and Storefront Improvement Program

Did you know?

  • That your business may be eligible for funding through the Town's Façade and Storefront Improvement Program?

  • That you could receive up to $5,000 toward esthetic improvements to your storefront?

  • That the Town can help you beautify your storefront to help attract new business?


The Town’s Façade and Storefront Improvement Program is a financial assistance initiative aimed at helping business owners increase their street appeal through visual upgrades to their storefronts. Through the program, businesses meeting a Council-approved set of criteria may be eligible for a reimbursement of up to 50 per cent (to a maximum of $5,000) toward façade and storefront upgrades.

Sounds great! But is my business eligible? Should I apply?

Absolutely! If you’re planning on carrying out any of the following types of work to your business’s façade or storefront, read on for more information:

  • Restoration of paint and other exterior finishes
  • Repair/replacement of doors, windows and doorways
  • Installation of awnings, canopies, sign bands and lighting
  • Fitting of new architectural details (entranceways, base trim, cornices, corner accents, etc.)
  • Addition of patio areas and landscaping elements

Or…

  • Any other type of work that’s deemed to be in line with the program’s objectives!

Since its inception, the program has awarded tens of thousands of dollars to local businesses whose resulting upgrades have helped contribute to a healthy and vibrant commercial environment. The addition of characteristic features has also benefited shoppers, who now spend more time perusing all that the Town’s commercial sector has to offer.

Apply today!

Town staff are on hand to guide you through the application process, which begins by filling out a paper form at the Town Office. After that, a Review Committee looks at applications on a case-by-case basis, requesting additional information or revisions as needed.

To assist in the process, the Town also provides a limited number of referral appointments with a professional designer, who provides applicants with advice and recommendations.

All in all, the process couldn’t be any easier! Start yours today!
