Watch this space for updates on how Nova Scotia’s response to COVID-19 is affecting our programs and services.

In light of concerns around the spread of COVID-19, the team at Communities, Culture and Heritage is taking direction from public health and working from home as much as possible. We want to assure you that we continue to deliver our programs and will make modifications as necessary during these exceptional times. Your patience is appreciated as we navigate this together.

Current funding commitments will remain in place. If you applied for a program with a recent deadline (late February/March), a program officer will be in touch to discuss next steps. We are currently reviewing grant program deadlines that occur after April 1, 2020, in order to find the best way to deliver our programs during these exceptional circumstances. In the interim, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact your program officer.

We know the current situation is having an impact on our stakeholders. Please reach out to your program officer anytime with questions or concerns.
