Collingwood Heritage Advisory Committee Grant Guidelines
The Town of Collingwood provides financial assistance for owners of designated heritage structures. Monies are directed to the conservation and restoration of those properties that have been designated for their historical and/or architectural significance in accordance to Part IV or V of the Ontario Heritage Act.
Heritage Grant Program
The Town of Collingwood has approved a Heritage Grants program. Through this program, owners of designated properties may be eligible to receive a grant toward the conservation and restoration of the heritage features of their properties. Upon satisfactory project completion, the grant amount is one half of eligible project costs to a maximum grant of $3,000.00. The grant must be matched by a contribution from the owner and is based on the owner’s actual expenditures as verified by invoices. The property owner may receive one grant per calendar year.
The Role of the Collingwood Heritage Advisory Committee
The Collingwood Heritage Advisory Committee is a committee of Collingwood Council and is responsible for reviewing applications in accordance to the Heritage Grant Program guidelines. The Collingwood Heritage Advisory Committee consists of volunteers from the community appointed by Council because of their knowledge or interest in architecture, history, construction, law, or first-hand experience with building restoration. The Committee has the staff support of Town Building Services.
