Protecting Heritage SitesFinancial Support

Various grants are available to groups or individuals for heritage-related projects.

If you have a site with heritage designation, you may be eligible for a Designated Heritage Building Grant. These are not intended for routine maintenance or upgrades, but rather are designed to help with projects that are directly related to repairing or restoring the heritage character of a building.

The Heritage Grants Program supports a range of heritage projects, excluding capital or operating funds. The Town of Rivers and Thr Rivers Train Station Restoration project already carried out several projects with the help of Heritage Grants.

It is always advisable to consult with the Town and/or the R.M. office) if you are considering undertaking your own grant proposal for a heritage project—they have the background and experience that can help you define and refine your project.
