Harrogate BID is again providing grants to support businesses looking to improve their shop fronts and accessibility.

Every year, the BID provides the match funding to levy paying businesses for support with improvement work.

The aim is to create a "great first impression" for any visitors to the town – and allows residents and business owners in Harrogate to take pride in their town which links to one of the BID’s term 2 objectives.

Harrogate BID will provide match funding up to £750 towards these improvement works.

All members within the Harrogate BID area are eligible to apply for the grant – which is available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Matthew Chapman, Harrogate BID Manager, said:

“Harrogate is always championed as the jewel in Yorkshires crown and we know that first impressions really do count.

“This is why we are proud to once again launch the Shop Front Match Funding Grant to support our members and this worthy representation.”

The aim is to offer investment into repairs and redecorations of business entrances and streets, refurbishment or replacement of graphics and signage and improvements on accessibility including the installation of ramps, handrails and automatic doors.

Businesses wishing to submit a request for a grant should email info@harrogatebid.co.uk with a short description of the proposed work, any equipment needed, the expected completion date and any quotations or proposals.

Further details on the terms and conditions of the grants can be found on the Harrogate BID website.
