Shop-front Improvement Grant Scheme (SIGS)

Shop-front Improvement Grant Scheme (SIGS)

Business property owners and tenants are encouraged to apply for grant assistance to undertake external property improvement works to enhance the streetscape frontage of shops and businesses in the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council area. The quality of shop fronts is of great importance to both the character of the Borough and the vitality of local business and retailing.

The aim of this grant scheme is to assist business property owners to invest in their buildings and improve the quality of the building stock in the Borough. This will in turn make our towns and villages more attractive for people to visit and invest, shop and live in.

The grant offered will fund 50% of project costs up to a maximum of £1,500. Applicants must fund 50% of the project costs up to the maximum award and any further costs exceeding £3,000. NB: There is no minimum level of grant award.
