The African American Heritage Preservation Grant Program is administered as a joint partnership of the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture (MCAAHC) and the Maryland Historical Trust (MHT). Last year, 12 projects across 10 counties received $1 million in support, collectively.
The program supports for the acquisition, construction, and capital improvement of buildings, sites, or communities of historical and cultural importance to the African American experience in Maryland. The amount available for awards will be known once the State adopts a budget in early April.
Parties interested in submitting a proposal should discuss project parameters and budgets with the MCAAHC and MHT staffs before developing a proposal. Applicants should closely read the application, guidelines, and instructions to understand all submission requirements.
For assistance in the development of project scope and purpose, contact Dr. Joni Jones, MCAAHC Director, at (410) 216-6190. For assistance with capital project and technical preservation issues, contact Anne Raines, MHT Capital Grants Administrator, at (410) 514-7634.
