Enhance Your Business, Inside and Out

We are pleased to offer businesses in the Town of Taber, M.D. of Taber, and Brooks Region an opportunity to receive a beautification loan and grant to enhance the appearance of a business. The program provides an incentive for local business owners to invest in façade renovations and interior upgrades.

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.

Funds are limited, and spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Successful projects will strive to make visible improvements to the 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.
