DMSMRI Home Exterior Fix-up Grant Program

The 2021 Home Exterior Fix-up Grant Program is NOW CLOSED. We hope to offer them again in 2022 and should know sometime in May 2022.

2021 program recap:

- Total number of grants issued: 44 (41 to homeowners, 3 to landlords)
- Total paid out by DMSMRI: $44,500
- Total paid by applicants: $104,799
- Total investment created by the 2021-22 program: $149,279

The purpose of the DMSMRI Home Exterior Fix-up Grant Program is to improve a home's exterior quality, safety or appearance. Between 2007 and 2020, we have provided over $650,000 in grants to 597 properties in the Daniel McIntyre and St. Matthews neighbourhoods. This, in turn, has leveraged an additional $1 million in investment from owners.

After a year's absence, the grants returned in spring 2018 thanks to our new partners: the Spence Neighbourhood Association and the City of Winnipeg.


DMSMRI Home Exterior Fix-up Grants are available to property owners located within the Daniel McIntyre and St. Matthews Neighbourhoods, (see the map below for our boundaries), who have not received this grant in the last five years, (summer of 2016 to present). They can be used for a wide variety of home exterior renovation projects or to build a fence.

To apply, you will need to fill out an application form. Attached to that form we require TWO quotes from contractors or TWO materials estimates from retailers for the work you want to do. We also require proof of home ownership, which can be a copy of your last property assessment notice from the city showing your name and the address.

Please note that your grant application must be approved prior to starting the work.

More details about the grant can be found on the application form which you can download here.

If you want to discuss your grant application or need assistance filling out the form, please contact our Housing Grant Coordinator at 204-774-7005 ext. 102 or housing [at]
