Norfolk County has approved Jodi and Brent Ainsworth for the Building Façade Improvement Program of the Community Improvement Plan (CIP).
Jodi and Brent Ainsworth will receive an interest free loan of up to $594 and a grant of up to $594 for new windows and a door at 76 Kent Street South.
Incentives are available for architectural and design, environmental site assessment, structural improvements, building facades, agricultural building and facilities, residential conversions and rehabilitation, landscaping, signage and property improvement. Property tax increment grants are also available for larger projects.
Non-residential projects are eligible for incentives. Depending on the program, programs apply to properties in urban, hamlet, lakeshore and agricultural areas.
Community Improvement Plans help municipalities target areas in transition or in need of repair, rehabilitation and redevelopment, and stimulate private sector investment through municipal incentive-based programs.
