The Indigenous Cultural Heritage Infrastructure Grant supports projects that conserve, repair or develop Indigenous cultural heritage infrastructure.
The goal of this grant is to support Indigenous communities to safeguard, revitalize and celebrate their heritage through projects that include the conservation of structures, cultural heritage sites, landscapes, trails and archives.
This funding is for Indigenous organizations in B.C. with a mandate or a focus that includes Indigenous cultural heritage. This can include First Nations bands, tribal councils, not-for-profit societies registered in B.C. that are in good standing and with more than half of the directors identifying as Indigenous, and Indigenous-led museums and cultural spaces.
This grant is an extension of the Unique Heritage Infrastructure (UHI) grant, funded by the BC Heritage Branch.
The ICHIG webinar is available for viewing.
The moderator for this event is FPCC Heritage Program Manager Karen Aird with panelists Lyndsie Bourgon from FPCC, and Genevieve Casault, Manager, Heritage Programs and Services Integrated Resources, Heritage Branch of BC.
