The Town of Taber and Municipal District of Taber, along with Community Futures Chinook, is pleased to offer businesses in the MD Taber Region an opportunity to receive a beautification loan and grant to enhance the appearance of a business. Businesses can apply for up to $10,000 in funding of which 80% would be an interest free loan and 20% would be a grant. Successful applicants could receive up to an $8,000 loan and a $2,000 grant.
The program provides an incentive for local business owners to invest in façade renovations and interior upgrades. Successful projects will strive to make visible improvements to the appearance, curb appeal, design and function of a business by:
- Adding curb appeal and variety at the sidewalk level, emphasizing active storefronts, orienting windows and doorways to the street.
- Improving the interior view of shops and restaurants through the use of clear glass, and storefront designs that make use of window display areas.
- Coordinating façade improvements with neighbouring buildings and the unique character of the local business area.
- Undertaking general cleaning of the building exterior, repainting faded and peeling paint, repairing damaged areas of the façade, and restoring unique architectural features.
Contact Community Futures Chinook (403) 223-2984 to apply for the program. Please ask for Alvaro!
