To maximize flexibility for communities, program staff receive applications from interested municipalities on a ongoing basis throughout the year. That said, since MHPP projects are funded by the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation, it is convenient for stakeholders to coordinate their applications with meetings of the Foundation’s Board, which generally take place on a quarterly basis. This allows time for staff to review applications and prepare recommendations for the Board, and for the board members to review materials in advance.
Please note that the Heritage Preservation Partnership Program does maintain formal deadlines, of February 1st and September 1st of each calendar year.
At the Nov. 29-30th meeting of the Foundation, the Board established its meeting schedule for 2014, which in turn gives us the requested dates for submission of MHPP and AMSP grant applications.
- For the February 21-22 meeting in Olds, submit by January 27th.
- For the May 9-10 meeting in Fort McMurray, submit by April 14th.
- For the September meeting 12-13 in Pincher Creek, submit by August 18th.
- For the November 28-29 in Edmonton, submit by November 3rd.
If you have any questions about MHPP or AMSP applications, please feel free to contact us.
