Legion Capital Assistance Program

Community Funding and Awards

Legion Capital Assistance Program

The Legion Capital Assistance Program (LCAP) is intended to assist Royal Canadian Legions across Nova Scotia with capital upgrades to existing buildings used to house legion events and community activities.

The program will provide up to 50 per cent of total eligible costs to a maximum of $10,000 for eligible projects. In-kind trade work may be considered as part of the organization's share.

Legions that received funding in 2018-2019 are not eligible to receive funding in 2019-2020. Applications from Legions that received funding in 2017-2018 will be considered if budget remains after reviewing applications from those Legions that have not received funding in the past three years.
