The application for the Re-Imagine Downtown Activation Grant opened on Wednesday for Lethbridge businesses owners, entrepreneurs and organizations which need some financial support to get programs or initiatives off the ground that would help out the downtown district. There is $123,000 available in funding.
“We as a downtown have been struggling. Downtowns everywhere have been struggling for the last few years. And as we continue to emerge from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, everybody’s sort of starting to come back out. One of the roles of the HOC to encourage that and to do what we canto encourage businesses, individuals, community minded groups to apply for these grants and hopefully get our citizens and our residents out into the downtown participating in the city again.”
The application deadline will close on April 14th.
