Type of Program:
The Support for Heritage Projects Component offers funding to non-profit heritage organizations and individual heritage practitioners whose principal activity is in the cultural heritage sector (e.g. community museums, archives, built heritage, intangible cultural heritage and the material culture sector). This funding is intended for projects, not on-going programs. A project is defined as an activity that has a definite start and end date (within one year), specific goals and objectives.
The program has 4 components:
- 1Collections Conservation, Management and Presentation: this component is aimed at enhancing the conservation, management and presentation of collections in eligible organizations. Support will be provided for activities that raise the professional quality and authenticity of heritage resources.
- 2Professional Development and Training: this component encourages human resource development in order to strengthen the level of expertise within the heritage sector.
- 3Research: this component encourages groups to undertake research and to ensure that research is carried out by qualified individuals. Research projects will engage professionals to undertake research or supervision of projects.
