Rich history of Alberta shared with help from heritage grants

Alberta Culture, through the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation, is providing 58 grants from fiscal 2013-14, totaling $1.03 million to support community heritage preservation and conservation projects across Alberta. This is a standard bi-annual announcement.

Grants have been awarded to individuals as well as municipalities, nonprofit organizations and businesses to support a range of heritage preservation projects from conservation of designated historic buildings to research projects, publications and heritage inventories.
