Mainstreet Revitalisation & Improvement Grants

Funding for small businesses and property owners within the City of Adelaide—$200k available

Grant applications will open later in 2021.

Small businesses, organisations and property owners within the Adelaide CBD and North Adelaide areas can express interest to receive a grant of up to $10,000 to enhance and activate their outdoor areas. The grants specifically target applicants with street frontages along along six of the city’s mainstreets – Hutt, Hindley, Melbourne, O’Connell, Gouger and Rundle Street.

Funding can be used towards outdoor improvements including heating, painting, lighting, outdoor furniture and blinds, as well as artworks, murals and greening elements e.g. green walls and window boxes.

Applicants are encouraged to think creatively about opportunities that could help:

  • activate and enliven their outdoor area
  • drive traffic to their business during the cooler months
  • support and create South Australian jobs.
  • The City of Adelaide will provide funding for 80 per cent of projects costs to a maximum grant of $10,000 (excluding GST). As a condition of the grant approval, each applicant will need to fund 20 per cent of the project costs.

    Applications will be considered from businesses, organisations and property owners along Hutt Street, Hindley Street, Gouger Street, Rundle Street, Melbourne and O’Connell Street for a variety of medium-to-long term street level improvements. 

    Please register your interest to be contacted to apply.
