Greenview is committed to supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs in our communities. Greenview aims to advance our local economic goals by encouraging pride in the success and potential of our local businesses by implementing a Beautification Grant.

The Beautification Grant acts as an immediate economic driver by providing local employment and business for local trades and suppliers and enhancing building aesthetics, contributing to the beautification and vibrancy of Greenview and its communities.

The beautification grant will pay businesses between 50-70% of eligible costs, up to a maximum of $5,000, depending on where your business is located within Greenview.

The Beautification Grant will remain open until grant funding has been allocated.

  • Must be a small business.
  • Must be located within Greenview.
  • Must hold a valid Greenview Business License.
