Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Manitoba individuals, organizations, businesses, and local agencies for the maintenance, renovation, and construction of sites to recognize the contributions of veterans. Applicants must contact the funding source at least four weeks before submitting their application.

Objective:

  • To assist primarily with conservation work on existing military memorials in Manitoba, with the goal of extending the physical life and commemorative function of the memorials, and raising their profile as sites of reflection and commemoration, and as valuable cultural infrastructure in the community.
  • The program prioritizes conservation activities that are in accordance with The Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada (herein referred to as the Standards & Guidelines), which establishes a consistent set of conservation principles and guidelines adopted by federal-provincial-territorial heritage agencies.

A Military Memorial for the purpose of this grant is a tangible object that is dedicated to the memory of Manitobans for their military contributions. Memorials dedicated to one individual may be considered as a lower priority, if program demand allows.

The Military Memorial Conservation Grant supports capital projects in several categories (listed in descending order of priority; expected percentage of available annual funding for each category is indicated):

  1. Conservation of the Memorial (60%)
  2. Conservation or Restoration of Original Historic Site Elements (20%)
  3. Inscription Updates (5%)
  4. New Infrastructure to Improve Accessibility to the Memorial (5%)
  5. New Memorials (10%)
Details of the grant categories can be found at https://www.gov.mb.ca/chc/grants/pdf/mmcg-guidelines.pdf#page=2.
