Enhance Downtown Victoria
Murals and public art installations beautify downtown Victoria. The Enhance Downtown Victoria grant is worth 20% of the cost (to a maximum of $2,500) for property owners. Grants must be approved by a committee made up of DVBA and the City representatives. Application must be completed before any work is done.
Murals sponsored by the DVBA include Lady Justice, Queen Victoria, Janion, Hanging Dragons, Atomique building, Chinatown, and Library Lane.
Enhance Downtown Victoria Grants are available for:

Grants will be paid upon satisfactory completion of work and receipt presentation. To be eligible for a grant, a property must be located within the downtown Victoria boundaries. The application must fully outline and illustrate the scope of work (materials, lighting, professional services, etc.) Unless circumstances warrant otherwise, more than one quote is required for proposed services or product. All work must receive the necessary heritage and design approvals, as well as building permits from the City of Victoria.
