Shopfront Enhancement Grant Scheme Guidelines & Application Form


 Applications being received from 7th January

Westmeath County Council has made funding available for business owners to improve the building facades of their properties. The aim of the scheme is to encourage and support owners of local retail and commercial premises to improve their individual shopfronts.

A fund of €250,000 has been provided for 2019. Grants of up to €2,500 or 50% of the cost of the works will be available for qualifying applicants.  It is intended that the scheme will result in a more attractive environment that residents, visitors, shoppers and businesses can enjoy. It is also envisaged that this scheme will assist in promoting our towns and villages as attractive places for social and business interaction, thereby increasing the vitality and viability of our settlements with positive benefits for all.
