The TDIA offers ongoing grants to help create a vibrant community.
Downtown Facade Grant
The TDIA and The City of Terrace have again partnered to bring Northern Development Initiative Trust funding to Terrace’s downtown. We have $20,000 from NDIT and are adding another $20,000 from the TDIA budget to provide up to $40,000 in matching grants to property and business owners.
Not ready for a big renovation to your building? No problem! We support small projects such as building painting and sign renewal. 2020 guidelines are available for download. Applicants are reviewed on a first come first served basis.
JULY 2020 COVID Update!: Apply now for a matching grant up to $1000 for interior changes related to COVID -19 mitigation.

Downtown Security Grant
The TDIA partnered with the City of Terrace in 2019 to pay for private security patrols in the Terrace Downtown. In 2020, the City of Terrace is hiring bylaw officers to work specifically in the downtown area. Downtown safety and security is a priority for the TDIA and its members. We will evaluate the situation and adapt as need be.
Businesses that wish to enhance security of their premises through environmental design, security cameras, lighting etc., can apply to the TDIA for a matching grant of up to $500. This grant stream is open and ongoing, until our 2020 budget of $5,000 is expended. Download your application package and email to us.
TDIA has a grant fund of $5,000 to support downtown events. However, due to COVID-19, downtown events are currently cancelled, and these funds will be redirected to downtown marketing when our current stay-at-home social isolation conditions change.
The TDIA supports marketing of downtown initiatives (not specific businesses) that drive traffic to the downtown. In collaboration with local businesses, we will support marketing initiatives when our current stay-at-home social isolation conditions change.
