True riches

When you live here, you know why. The land, the sea, the people, true riches.

2017 Facade Grant Program

Façade Grant Program

The Municipality of the District of Guysborough is once again offering a program to improve the facades of buildings to enhance the “curb-appeal” and make our communities more attractive.  The goal of the program is to enhance the appearance of the commercial retail/service businesses and in so doing refresh the sense of pride within our community.

The Façade Grant Program is designed to provide financial assistance to commercial property owners who would like to improve and enhance the ‘cosmetic’ appeal of their building from a streetscape viewpoint.  Each eligible applicant could receive a grant for 50% of the cost of the project up to a maximum of $5,000.00.

The Municipality will be accepting completed applications under the Façade Grant Program up until June 30, 2017.  For a complete copy of the Program guidelines, including application form, please click here or contact the following:
