Shopfront Grants Offered to Local Businesses in 2016



A number of shopfront grants have become available to local businesses in 2016. Dublin City Council’s Shopfront Improvement Scheme for The Liberties follows last year’s grant for Thomas Street from which 11 businesses benefitted.

To promote the Irish language Foras na Gaeilge are offering a grant to businesses who erect their shopfront sign i nGaeilge.

If you are considering undertaking maintenance work to your building we have made available some useful support documents which you can find here.


Dublin City Council Scheme

Dublin City Council are inviting applications from business-holders and commercial property owners in The Liberties for grants under the Shopfront Improvement Scheme 2016. The objective of the scheme is to support commercial premises owners who contribute positively to the local environment and the image of The Liberties, and who in turn attract increased local and visitor footfall to the area.

The scheme offers up to 50% of the costs of certain works to refurbish and repair shop fronts and certain upper floors works, with maximum grants of €3,000. The closing date for applications is 15th April 2016. Find more information here.
