The Downtown Courtenay BIA is offering grants to local businesses to improve their look.

The BIA’s Executive Director Kim Stubblefield says the Façade Improvement Grant was a big success last year – helping to support renovations on the building at the corner of Fitzgerald Avenue and 4th Street.

Stubblefield says you can visit the downtown Courtenay website for more information and to apply for the grant.

Businesses must have their applications in by April 30th.
