2024 Business Façade Program - Now Open!

The Village of McBride partners with Northern Development Initiative Trust to bring the Village of McBride Business Façade Improvement Program to the community.

The Business Façade Improvement Program is designed to foster collaboration between the municipality and local business owners/tenants to improve the character and physical appearance of their buildings.

The Village of McBride is confident that this initiative will contribute to:

  • Making McBride a more inviting and interesting place to live, eat, shop, work and visit
  • Attracting customers, clients, visitors, businesses and investors to McBride
  • Promoting the marketability of retail and commercial businesses
  • Helping building owners to attract and retain tenants
  • Building civic pride among the business community and citizens

The Village of McBride will provide a matching dollar-per-dollar reimbursement grant of up to 50% of allowable, eligible costs up to a maximum of $5,000 per project.

Projects must have a minimum total cost of $2,000.

Applications will be received and approved on a first-come, first-served basis until all grant funding has been awarded. New applicants (building has not previously seen façade improvement through this program) will be prioritized.

The application deadline is July 31, 2024, subject to change.
