Facade Grant Program
The Municipality of Central Huron is pleased to offer the Central Huron Façade Improvement Program. The Program includes façade improvements for all properties in Central Huron that desginated as commercial in the Central Huron Official Plan. The Municipality has set aside funds to assist property owners in the expansion or improvement of the building façade or signage.
The proposed 2013 Façade Grant Program budget is divided into two program releases (a maximum of $5,000 of matching funds per application). The funds will be distributed on a “first come first served” basis. The application deadline has not yet been set, but applications are welcome at any time. Funding may be in the form of a cash or in-kind contribution.
The structure for the proposed enhancement must be within Central Huron and must be designated as Commercial in the Central Huron Official Plan. The proposed façade improvement must meet the specific property criteria outlined in the Facade Improvement Program Guidlines, and it's purpose is to improve and enhance the 'cosmetic' appeal of the structure from a streetscape viewpoint. The application must be completed in its entirety and must receive approval prior to the completion of the works. It is understood that the applicant will be reimbursed the grant amount following the completion of the works and submission of all project receipts.
Applications for funding should include:
- Description of the project
