Façade Improvement grants

Applications for Stage 1. ‘Project Brief’ open 23 March and close 10 April 2023.

Open to all businesses with a shopfront in the Frankston City municipality, including those outside the city centre, if eligible in accordance with guidelines.

With a funding pool of $100,000 and between $5,000 and $20,000 per application available, an Invest Frankston Façade Improvement Grant could help you attract more business or an exciting new tenant to your Frankston City shop and achieve that fresh look you've been hoping for. 

The Façade Improvement grants are designed to encourage and facilitate business owners, operators and landlords to enhance the presentation of their building or business across the city. A more interesting street experience can have a significant effect on the attractiveness and marketability of the surrounding area, inviting more foot traffic and supporting and inspiring further business investment. 

Whether it's a fresh coat of paint, new signage, lighting to support your night-time trading, servery windows or bi-fold doors, or you have other ideas to spruce up the front of your business facade, now is your chance to apply for funding for your project. 

All applicants are encouraged to read the Facade Improvements Guidelines(PDF, 4MB) before applying.
