ACCESSIBILITY GRANT MONEY STILL AVAILABLE FOR ARNPRIOR BUSINESSES 7/9/2018 7:13:48 AM
The Town of Arnprior is showing its commitment to helping local businesses with their accessibility issues. Marketing and Economic Development Officer Lindsay Wilson has told elected representatives that there are a number of establishments that had not taken advantage of a municipal Accessibility Grant Program that was due to expire.
The EDO says some enterprises were reluctant to commit to the program because two years of reconstruction had crimped their cash flow. Mayor David Reid calculates that eighteen businesses could apply and receive grants from the Accessibility Program before the current budget is used up. Lindsay Wilson says available funds will be added to the program annually.
