City launches Light up your Business Grant

October 26, 2020

The City of Fort St. John invites downtown businesses to apply for the Light up your Business Grant. Supported through the Mayor’s Standing Committee on Economic Recovery and Resiliency, the grant will support businesses and encourage residents to shop locally.

“As the Mayor’s Standing Committee on Community Economic Recovery continues to work on the Social and Economic Development Framework, we want to support our local downtown businesses, encourage residents to shop locally and realize this initiative that is a part of our Winter City Guidelines,” said Mayor Lori Ackerman.

Downtown businesses are eligible for up to $1000 to beautify and illuminate your storefronts and update window decor for a seasonal transformation. Additional lighting adds to your business’s ambiance, from string lights to window decorations and other forms of art that would make your storefront stand out!
