Woy Woy businesses eligible for facade grants

Businesses in Woy Woy will be eligible this year for grants of up to $5000 from Central Coast Council to improve their facades.

Applications for the Facade Improvement Support program open on Friday, September 1.

The program aims to provide businesses and commercial property owners with the opportunity to gain help to enhance their building facades and to improve accessibility.

Council director Ms Melanie Smith said the support program piloted in November last year was a success and would now include Woy Woy which was previously ineligible.

"Last year we saw 35 businesses and commercial property owners apply for support through this program, with 30 of these applications recommended.

"This program aims to support local businesses, enhance their offering and accessibility to assist with the revitalisation of our local town centres.

"By improving shopfront accessibility and aesthetics, we hope this will support local businesses in attracting visitors to spend locally and contribute to our economy.

"The dollar-for-dollar matched funding is provided for the cost of works, labour, and materials to a maximum value of $5000 per property in eligible town centres.

"This year's program will open with $150,000 in available funding.

"Project ideas don't have to be costly to make a large impact.

"Ideas can be big or small and can include, painting, signage, updated awnings, and installation of access ramps."

Applications will be received until midnight on 30 September 2023.

Registration for information sessions, the funding guidelines and applications are all available online on the Facade Improvement Support Program page at
