The Business Enhancement Grant is funded through a partnership between the Drumheller & District Chamber of Commerce, Community Futures Big Country and the Town of Drumheller.

• Heller Good Sandwiches

• Homestead Museum

• Kolor Kult Beauty Salon

• Meliora Wellness

• Newcastle Country Inn

• Prahan Physiotherapy

The total value of the approved projects is estimated at over $55,000, which will be an added boost to the local economy. A stipulation of the grant program is that labour and materials be sourced locally from companies holding a valid Town of Drumheller business license.

“On behalf of the Chamber of Commerce, we are happy to continue our partnership with the Town and Community Futures to provide much needed support to our business community. The Business Enhancement Grant program has assisted with a variety of exterior and interior enhancements, both small and large, which have had a positive economic impact on our community,” said Heather Bitz, Executive Director of the Drumheller & District Chamber of Commerce.
