 The Town of Drumheller is pleased to announce applicants for the new "Interior Building Improvement Grant" selected on May 28, 2020.

Businesses receiving the grant include – Diana Restaurant, RA Hamilton, Riverside Pharmacy, Sam's Car & Truck Wash, Bold Efexx and Drumheller Registries.

The grant will fund up to 75% of the improvements up to a maximum of $2,500 dollars with the applicant responsible for the balance of the contribution. Eligible costs include interior painting, floor covering, electrical and plumbing fixtures as well as labour and materials.

"Town Council is always looking for ways to help local businesses make improvements to help increase traffic to their stores.This is an opportunity for businesses to freshen up their interiors and find their uniqueness without shouldering the complete cost of the improvements." Said Mayor Heather Colberg.

The grant also stipulates labour and materials must be sourced locally from companies holding a valid Drumheller business license. This will benefit local building supply stores, local contractors and tradespeople. Some exceptions will apply for materials that are unavailable in Drumheller.

In the April 27th Council meeting, Councillor Jay Garbutt commented, "I am pleased Administration was able to bring an excellent grant program forward during this time to help local business owners improve their interiors with no new spending asks or budget increases."

Applicants were notified on June 1, 2020.
