Exterior Home Improvement Program
*Note: Curb Appeal funding will not be available in 2017, as the program concluded on December 31, 2016.
The City has launched Curb Appeal, an exterior home repair program for homeowners living in designated priority neighbourhoods.
What Curb Appeal is for
Through the Curb Appeal program, the City aims to:
- renovate exterior home facades in priority neighbourhoods
- address the ongoing demand for home repair funding
- contribute to neighbourhood sustainability and revitalization
- help meet Cornerstones II objectives to improve the condition of the existing housing stock
Curb Appeal will help qualifying homeowners improve the exterior of their homes, garages and landscaping. The program will offer grant funding up to a maximum of $1,000 on a 50/50 cost shared basis. (for example, If you spend $500 on painting the exterior of your home, the City will reimburse you for $250, or half of your costs).
Who can apply
If you are a homeowner currently residing in one of the designated priority neighbourhoods and you would like to make exterior home improvements to your home, you are eligible to apply to the program. Funding is available on a first-come-first-serve basis and is based on limited budget availability.
The priority neighbourhoods for the Curb Appeal program are Alberta Avenue, Boyle Street, Central McDougall, Eastwood, McCauley, Parkdale and Queen Mary Park. Residents of priority neighbourhoods may also qualify for the City of Edmonton's HOPE grant for homes in need of major repair.
