Do you need assistance to enhance your premises and to make it COVID-19 safe? Could your premises do with a facelift to stimulate business?
The COVID-19 Recovery Revitalisation Scheme, funded by the Department for the Communities and The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, may be able to help you with small 100% grants to improve shop frontages and interior facilities. The maximum level of grant aid will be determined upon receipt of the completed expressions of interest.
Eligible improvements may include works such as:
• Shop front repairs / enhancements
• Provision of awnings, wind breakers, gazebos
• Sanitizer stations
• Permanent/Mobile screens
• Pop-up shops
• PA System
• Contactless payments
• Self Service facilities
NB: The above list is indicative only and other items will be considered. All applications will be assessed on merit.
Please note that if you have received a Shop Front Improvement Scheme grant from Newry, Mourne and Down District Council within the last three years, approval will not be given to items that have previously been funded. All funding must be for new initiatives taken as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
