DMSMRI Home Exterior Fix-up Grants
The purpose of the DMSMRI Home Exterior Fix-up Grants is to improve a home's exterior quality, safety or appearance. Between 2007 and 2020, we 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), that 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.
Please note that your grant application must be approved prior to starting the work.
More details about the grant can be found on the latest application form which you can download here in Word or PDF. Printed copies can be obtained by visiting the DMSMCA Resource Centre, 823 Ellice Avenue at Arlington Street.
