Commercial buildings, recreation facilities, houses, churches, industrial structures and all the fascinating places in between – does your municipality want to learn more about its older buildings, structures and landmarks? The Municipal Heritage Partnership Program (MHPP) provides cost-shared funding opportunities to Alberta municipalities for the identification, evaluation and management of local historic places. MHPP also offers guidance and training to Alberta municipalities to enable the identification and conservation of local historic places.
Funding proposals from municipalities are accepted on an on-going basis. These proposals are then reviewed by the board of the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation. Funding proposals received:
- by April 8, 2011 will be reviewed at the May 2011 Board meeting
- by August 12, 2011 will be reviewed at the September 2011 Board meeting
- by October 28, 2011 will be reviewed at the December 2011 Board meeting
If you would like to learn more about MHPP funding opportunities, or discuss project ideas please contact MHPP staff.
The Alberta Historical Resources Foundation also supports a range of community and individual heritage initiatives through the Heritage Preservation Partnership Program.
