The grants can support owners or stewards in the care of their historic site with financial assistance and professional guidance, helping to achieve a high standard of heritage conservation to sustain heritage places and the many benefits they offer for communities for the long term.
Planning Project Grants will provide heritage site owners and stewards an opportunity to work with a Heritage Consultant. Planning projects can take the form of research and/or required documentation for nominating a building, structure or site to the City of Vancouver’s Heritage Register or the creation of long-term informed conservation reports that map out a prioritized schedule for maintenance, repairs, restoration or rehabilitation of the site.
Conservation Project Grants provide the next step in supporting a heritage site’s conservation for the long term and focus on the maintenance, repair, restoration and rehabilitation of a site’s exterior fabric and character-defining elements that embody its heritage values.
