Application deadline extended to 4.30pm on Friday 31 May 2019.



Owners of commercial buildings in Adelong are being invited to apply for up to $10,000 in funding to assist with improving the street appeal of their properties located in Tumut Street, Adelong.

Snowy Valleys Council has received $100,000 in funding, through the NSW Stronger Communities Fund Round 2 (SCF2) in a one-off funding program for the Adelong Main Street Façade initiative.

The aim of the program is to provide seed funding to encourage the improvement of the commercial building façades along Tumut Street, Adelong.  It is hoped that this one-off funding opportunity will engender greater interest for façade improvements along Tumut Street in Adelong.

Eligible Projects 

Applicants are able to apply for up to $10,000 for their individual project. Owners of commercial buildings are invited to apply. Lessee retailers are also invited to apply (with permission obtained, in writing, from the Lessor).

Council is also giving those property owners the opportunity to contribute to the façade upgrade of their individual property if the amount allocated from the Funding does not fully cover the scope of works the property owner would like to undertake.

The funding guidelines outline the approved uses of the fund as:

  • For commercial properties only
  • Painting, signwriting, repair and clean-up of facades
  • The requirement to use an approved colour palette for any exterior painting (Council has worked with its Heritage Advisor to confirm the palette).

Individual property owners will be responsible for the delivery of their project. A Council officer will be appointed to oversee the projects.
