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 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.
Up to $250,000 in funding is available for First Nations organizations in B.C. with a focus that includes Indigenous heritage. This can include First Nations bands, Tribal Councils and not-for-profit societies with more than half of the directors identifying as First Nations, First Nations-led museums and cultural spaces.
Funding for the 2022-23 recipients will be delivered by FPCC and funded by the Government of British Columbia’s Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation through the First Peoples’ Cultural Foundation.
