Mar 04, 2009

The City of Mississauga is now accepting applications for the 2009 Designated Heritage Property Grant Program to encourage the conservation of Mississauga's heritage properties.

"Through this granting program, the City is able to provide matching grant support for the conservation, repair and/or restoration of property designated under the Ontario Heritage Act," said Mark Warrack, senior heritage coordinator.

Heritage Property Grant Program

  • Grants from $500 to $5,000 available for work pertaining to heritage attributes.
  • Grants from $500 to $10,000 available for structural work.
  • Total grant program budget is $75,000 and funding is allotted once per calendar year.
  • Projects must commence subsequent to the application submission and be completed by early fall of the same year.
  • Projects may include conservation, reconstruction or restoration of architectural elements, or restoration of structural soundness. Limited funds are available for architectural and engineering fees.
  • Properties in heritage conservation districts are eligible; however, those that do not contribute to the cultural heritage value of a heritage conservation district are not eligible.

How to Apply

Application forms and guidelines for the grant program are available at www.mississauga.ca/portal/residents/heritagegrants. Deadline for submissions is Friday, May 8, 2009 at 4 p.m. All grant requests will be subject to a comprehensive review to ensure each application meets the required grant criteria.
