Huron Heritage Fund accepting applications

March 7, 2023

Huron County, Ontario – May 1, 2023, is the next deadline for individuals and organizations to submit applications for the Huron Heritage Fund. Established in 2007, the purpose of the Huron Heritage Fund is to encourage the preservation of heritage assets and activities of heritage importance to the County of Huron and its residents.

Many initiatives from throughout Huron County have been supported by the Huron Heritage Fund since its inception. In recent years, projects have included support for the restoration of the Seaforth Post Office, Postcards from Huron County Podcast, St. Joseph’s Kingsbridge Community Centre, Bayfield Historical Society, Huron Perth Junior Farmers and multiple local historical publications.

“The County will contribute up to 50 per cent of the costs of a project to a maximum of $5,000 based on applications received,” according to Beth Rumble, Director of Cultural Services. This investment encourages other groups or individuals to invest in Huron County’s heritage as well.

Projects will assist in the preservation and restoration of heritage landmarks, historic buildings, and objects of historical significance not owned by the County of Huron.   Heritage publications and events also qualify for support under this program.
