City of Kelowna Heritage Grants Program

In 1991 the City of Kelowna created a structure whereby grants, using City of Kelowna tax dollars, could be given to those who own buildings on the Kelowna Heritage Register, in an effort to help them maintain their heritage properties.

The Central Okanagan Heritage Society took over the administration of the program in 2008. Called the City of Kelowna Heritage Grants Program, the committee and its manager work with heritage property owners to provide guidance and grants for the maintenance, rehabilitation and/or restoration of their heritage buildings.

The committee reviews grant requests four times in a calendar year. The grant guidelines and application forms are available on the City of Kelowna website or through the program manager, Lorri Dauncey at 250-861-7188.

The 2018 Kelowna Heritage Grants Program application and guideline can also be downloaded as a PDF here.
