This funding program supports new activities on a one-time basis that help to revitalize Indigenous cultural heritage.
The Indigenous Cultural Heritage Micro-Grant (ICH MG) supports the performance, preservation or sharing of Indigenous heritage, increasing knowledge sharing with Elders or assisting in the development of cultural heritage skills in Indigenous communities.
Accepted projects will be initiated and directed by B.C. First Nations and related organizations that have demonstrated commitment to their Indigenous cultural heritage practices and a mandate or focus that includes Indigenous heritage. This can include First Nations bands and tribal councils, First Nations schools, daycares and adult education centres and not-for-profit societies registered in B.C.
This program is funded by the BC Heritage Branch, in the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations & Rural Development.

Please note: These grants are only open to organizations.
