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 to provide 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. 2021 guidelines are available for download. Applicants will be reviewed May 31, and if funds are unspent, are reviewed on a first come first served basis after that.
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 2021 budget of $2,500 is expended. Download your application package and email to us.
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.
