Downtown Prince George Facade Improvement Grant Program
For a city’s downtown one of the strongest determinants of the character and quality is its building frontages. A community that is more appealing to the eye gives its citizens a greater sense of place and welcomes visitors.
In partnership with the City of Prince George, Northern Development Initiative Trust, the Prince George Downtown Business Improvement Association (Downtown Prince George) is pleased to provide this program to give monetary assistance as an incentive to owners of buildings and business tenants, to improve the character and physical appearance of their buildings and businesses.
If you are undertaking a façade improvement to your building or business frontage, Downtown Prince George will provide a 25% reimbursement grant – up to a maximum of $5,000 – per building/project. The building must be located in the Downtown PG/ C1 Zone (Appendix I). Each building within the Downtown Prince George area is eligible for the one-time grant. Projects must include eligible components and cannot exceed $200,000, in total.
Applications for 2017 projects will be accepted and awarded on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis. New projects must be completed no later than November 30, 2017. If for whatever reason, the project cannot be completed by November 30th, the applicant must notify Downtown Prince George and submit in writing, a request for a completion date extension. Approval is not guaranteed.
