Provincial and Federal Funding for Heritage Properties

In addition to the municipally funded Heritage Incentives Program, you can find financial support for your project at the provincial and federal level.

The Province of Nova Scotia operates several programs to help owners with the cost of maintaining registered heritage properties.

The National Trust for Canada offers a program called This Place Matters to help community organizations crowd fund to restore or adaptively re-use special heritage places.
