Brisbane City Council is driving suburban economic vitality by helping businesses and property owners upgrade their shopfronts.

The Suburban Shopfront Improvement Grant program provides up to $5000 (excluding GST) to property owners or tenants of shopfronts in local business precincts to assist in bringing a fresh new look to their shop’s façade. The program is another way Council is supporting local businesses and bringing character to suburban areas.

This is a matched grant, meaning that for every dollar requested from Council, the Applicant must have an equal dollar amount (or more) to put toward the project. To be eligible, work must not have already commenced or been paid for.

Grants are available for long-term, street-level improvements that bring a new look to the shopfront and contribute to the streetscape in a creative way. View the gallery of past grant recipients below.
