Lost Province Center for Cultural Arts has received $7,500 from the National Trust for Historic Preservation through the Johanna Favrot Fund for Historic Preservation. This funding will kickstart a market feasibility study that will guide LPCCA's business plan. The total cost of the study is $42,000 and we're currently working to secure other monies to fund this critical study.
