Designated Heritage Property Grant Program

To assist owners with the care of properties designated under the Ontario Heritage Act, the Town of Caledon established the Designated Heritage Property Grant Program (DHPG) in 2006. 

The grants are intended to assist property owners in the residential and institutional tax classes with small to mid-size preservation and/or restoration projects that focus on the maintenance and rehabilitation of existing heritage attributes or the restoration of attributes that would contribute to the cultural heritage value of the property.

Amounts

The program funds matching grants of 50% of eligible costs to a maximum of four thousand dollars ($4,000) per project, subject to available funding. Where a property contains non-heritage additions, only the heritage portion of a property will be eligible for the grant funding.

Each designated property is eligible to receive two grants in a calendar year to assist in instances where project scope and cost expand unexpectedly, or the need for urgent structural repairwork is discovered. In the event a second grant is approved in a calendar year, the property is not eligible for a grant in the following calendar year.

Application

Before you submit a grant application please check with us to see if the proposed work is eligible.

The application should contain sufficient information and supporting documentation as necessary to describe the proposed project and demonstrate its merits. The Town may request additional information before considering the application complete.

Deadline: May 17, 2019

Timing

All grants are made subject to available funding within the Town's annual program budget. Eligible work must be completed within three years of the grant approval date in order to receive funding.
