Heritage Grant Program applications open
Friday, May 1, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano
The city is now accepting applications for its Heritage Grant Program, through July 10. The grants are intended to help preserve historic buildings, sites or districts that promote tourism in the city. According to an announcement, the grants will be awarded to “heritage capital projects” that actively preserve physical spaces in the city and “site-specific heritage tourism projects” that educate and “enhance the understanding of significant historic places/events or provide new insight or new perspectives on well-documented places/events tied to a historic site.” More information about the program and eligibility requirements can be found on the city’s website.
