This funding program supports new activities on a one-time basis that help to revitalize Indigenous heritage.
Project applications may support the performance, preservation or sharing of Indigenous heritage, increase knowledge sharing with Elders or assist in the development of cultural heritage skills in Indigenous communities. This program is funded by the Heritage Branch of BC.
Indigenous Heritage Micro-Grants are for organizations in B.C. with a mandate or a 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. that are in good standing and with more than half of the directors identifying as Indigenous.
We are here to help!
