Non-capital MHAA grants are awarded for up to $50,000 per project, while capital MHAA grants are awarded for up to $100,000 per project. MHAA requires that both capital and non-capital projects support heritage tourism-related activities or infrastructure. This is a dollar-for-dollar matching grant program, though applicants may propose to use any combination of cash and in-kind support as a match.
