Receive a cash grant of up to $7,500 per project (maximum of 50% of the cost of the project) to restore the exterior paint colours of a heritage building. A Heritage Consultant will come to your home or building and determine the original colour scheme, then recommend a scheme for your project. Grant recipients will then contract a painter from our approved list to complete the work (see below to download the list).
Funded paint schemes are either the building’s original paint colours as determined by a Heritage Consultant, or are historically appropriate colours selected from the True Colours palette based on the recommendations of a Heritage Consultant.
The 2018 granting cycle is now closed and we are unable to accept new applications. Please check back or subscribe to our e-newsletter for information about 2019 grants.
Your home must be on the Heritage Register and be in good, original condition to be a candidate for a grant. Please email us a good quality photo of your house if you are considering True Colours.
