Heritage Infrastructure Program


$100,000 - $250,000
June 7, 2024 - September 15, 2025

The Heritage Infrastructure Program provides funding to support projects that conserve, repair or develop Indigenous heritage infrastructure.  

The goal of this program is to assist B.C. First Nations communities to safeguard, revitalize and celebrate their heritage through heritage infrastructure projects. Projects include the conservation of structures, heritage sites, landscapes, buildings and trails that support public and community access to heritage resources. They also include historical and cultural places, archives and heritage collections that are of collective value to an Indigenous community.  

$100,000 to $250,000 in funding is available for First Nations organizations in B.C. with a focus that includes Indigenous heritage.

NEW FPCC Funding Guidelines

The First Peoples’ Cultural Council Funding Guidelines for all programs is now available. This guide provides general information applicable to all FPCC programs and grants applications. We encourage all applicants to review, but this will be especially helpful for first-time applicants.


The FPCC Heritage Program supports projects by B.C. First Nations and B.C. First Nations-led organizations as per our legislated mandate. FPCC requires at least 75% of an organization’s board members/directors to include individuals from B.C. First Nations as they are the rightful stewards of their cultural heritage and are best equipped to lead the important work of protecting, sharing and revitalizing B.C. First Nations Heritage on these lands.
