NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!!!
.
The Downtown Truro Partnership and the Town of Truro recognize that the image of Downtown Truro is an important economic development tool.
The historic quality of the buildings, the available amenity space, green and social interaction spaces in the downtown area, are important assets to the image, the ‘feel’ and an attraction to those that live, work and shop in the downtown core.

The 2020 Façade & Signage Improvement Program is a funding program intended to provide financial aid and incentive to commercial property owners and tenants to improve the exterior appearance of their properties. We hope to stimulate commercial building improvements, promote investment and enhance the physical appearance and economic vitality of downtown Truro.

The newest version of this program is now open and accepting applications until December 31, 2020.
.
For further questions on the 2020 Façade & Signage Improvement Program please contact Jenn Mantin:
