Grant Amount


Total Project Cost


"The STAT Grant provided assistance to implement additional seating to help with socially distanced maximums in our dining room.  The railings for the patio helped us create a beautiful curb appeal on one of Stratford's main thoroughfares into our city.  Given the lack of festival tourists and the restrictions on inside dining, our expanded patio was a game changer for our business, our employees and our customers."

Shelley Windsor, Owner/Operator
