Enhance Your Business, Inside and out

We are pleased to offer businesses in the Downtown Medicine Hat core an opportunity to receive a beautification loan and grant to enhance the appearance of their business. This program provides an incentive for local business owners to invest in renovation projects and upgrades.

Businesses can apply for up to $15,000 in funding:

  • 80% would be an interest free loan

  • 20% would be a grant

Funds are limited, and spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Successful projects will strive to make visible improvements to the curb appeal, design and functionality of the business and may include:

  • Upgrades to windows and doorways that create a more inviting entryway from the street.

  • Interior improvements to enhance the visual appeal and functionality that will enrich the overall customer experience.

  • Coordinating façade improvements with neighbouring buildings to maintain the unique characteristics of the local business area.

  • Undertaking general exterior cleaning of the building, repainting faded and peeling paint, repairing damaged areas, and restoring unique architectural features.
