Grant updates

The annual application deadline for project grants offered by the Heritage Preservation Partnership Program is the first working day of February.

Applicants are generally notified of grant decisions in May or June, and have until February 28 of the following year to complete their projects and submit reporting requirements.

  • Recipients of heritage awareness, publication and research grants will receive the full amount of their grant upon initiation of their project.
  • Recipients of historic resource conservation grants will receive half of their grant upon initiation of their project. To request the final payment, grant recipients will submit invoices/receipts of eligible expenses for the entire project.

Grant funding is no longer available for the conservation of unprotected historic resources, cemeteries, and transportation and industrial artifacts. Only owners and authorized representatives of Provincial Historic Resources, Municipal Historic Resources, and Indigenous historic places recognized through a Band Council Resolution are eligible to apply for grants to support conservation work.

The program no longer offers grant funding for the non-conservation components of historic resource conservation projects, nor will it fund GST expenses for any grant streams.
