Facade Improvement Program

The Facade Improvement Program (FIP) encourages City of Logan owners and tenants to enhance their facades and help improve street appeal.

This is part of a strategy to revitalise buildings and streetscapes in eligible areas/selected urban centres.

Council will contribute $2 for every $1 invested by successful applicants up to a maximum of $10,000 to deliver the facade enhancements.

Applications for the Logan Facade Improvement Program Round 2 funding were open between 3 February 2023 and Friday 5 May 2023. At present there is no plans for a third round of the program, however Council approved the intent to create a broader Place Making Incentive Program that may include facade improvements opportunities. Council will communicate any future funding opportunities when the new program is launched.
