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
If so, the Covid 19 Recovery Revitalisation Scheme may be able to help you with small 100% grants to improve shop frontages and interior facilities in Newry City and the main towns, villages and settlements in the Newry, Mourne and Down District Council area. The maximum level of grant aid will be determined upon receipt of the completed expressions of interest.
As part of the Government Covid 19 Recovery plan for businesses impacted by Covid 19 the Department for the Communities (DFC) and The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) has made funding available to Councils to implement a Covid 19 Recovery Revitalisation Scheme. Funding for the enhancement of shop fronts and the implementation of measures necessary to comply with social distancing guidelines is now available. This scheme will be available to the business owners located in recognised settlements across the district including Newry City and the towns and villages.
Grants will be available to improve building frontages and overall attractiveness of the area, to promote it as a place for shoppers and visitors and to ensure the business is Covid 19 safe. This will be achieved through offering selective grant assistance to relevant owners and /or tenants.
|Eligible improvements may include works such as:|
Shop front repairs
Provision of awnings, wind breakers, gazebos
Self Service facilities
Screening of vacant sites
This list in 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 3 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.
To apply to the scheme go to the Councils website (www.newrymournedown.org) week beginning 10th August 2020 and download an EOI form or e-mail email@example.com to request a form.
