A number of funding programs can be accessed for the restoration of heritage buildings. Most of these are accessible to either not-for-profit organizations or businesses:
The JobsNL Wage Subsidy Program may be an option for employers (both profit and not-for-profit) to cover some labour costs.
Established not-for-profit organizations or local governments can apply to the Community Enhancement Employment Program. Any funds awarded through these programs for the purpose of exterior restoration can count towards the owner’s contribution.
Businesses, communities and organizations may also contact the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency to discuss funding opportunities as well as the Department of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation.
Several national programs also exist that may be possibilities for restoration funding. You can search for a listing.
