Community Facilities Improvement Program

Nova Scotia's Culture Action Plan contributes to the well-being and prosperity of Nova Scotia’s diverse and creative communities through the promotion, development, preservation, and celebration of the province’s culture, heritage, identity, and languages. At the heart of every community are places where people can gather safely to celebrate our rich cultural heritage. All Nova Scotians need facilities in their communities where they are safe and comfortable and that are welcoming, foster community pride and build stronger connections.

The Community Facilities Improvement Program supports community-led projects which enhance the public use of existing facilities. This includes repairs and improvements to building exteriors, and interior features that are integral to the long-term sustainability of the facility.

Contact details of your local regional office are noted in the Program Guidelines and Application Form.
