Need funding?

TensoShade can collaborate with you in obtaining the funds needed for your next shade project.

There are several sunshade grants and financing options to assist you with the shade structure you want.
A shade structure grant ultimately provides you with funds for the cost of purchasing your structure.
With funding in place, you are able to make better planning decisions which lead you to receive a better-quality shade solution and better sun protection.
