House Call grants provide funding towards an on site consultation and the creation of a conservation report. This report guides owners on how to best preserve the historic fabric and character-defining elements of their building. The document will outline the current state of a structure and the long-term plan for its repair, maintenance and conservation.
Receive up to 50% of the cost, to a maximum of $500, towards a Conservation Report.
Grant recipients must hire a Heritage Consultant from a list provided by VHF. The Heritage Consultant assesses the history and condition of your house, discusses your plans, and drafts the report.
If you apply for House Call, your house or building should be on or in the process of going on to the City of Vancouver Heritage Register. This grant is often applied for at the same time as the Get on the Register grant.
