City of Kwinana business grants
THE City of Kwinana is offering businesses in Medina, Parmelia, Calista and Orelia $50,000 to assist with improvements.
Applications for the City’s local commercial activity centre improvement grant funding are available until Friday, November 23.
The aim of the grant funding is to support local businesses, particularly in the City’s older commercial centres, which over the past few years have not received as much investment as some of the City’s newer areas.
Mayor Carol Adams said the council recognised that newer buildings, facilities and amenities had been invested in.
She said the grants aimed to ensure that the City’s more established areas were not forgotten and the City was able to invest back into those commercial centres as well.
“The City will provide up to $3000 per business to enable business owners in more established areas to invest back into commercial centres,” she Adams said.
“We hope the local businesses in these areas will make the most of this opportunity.
“The City provided more than $38,000 in support last year to a number of worthy recipients who used the grant money to undertake a range of activities that aimed to improve the aesthetics of the areas or support employment opportunities.”
The council previously supported projects such as removing security screens and installing roller shutters, improving signage, a new walkway and alfresco areas.
