The Minnesota Historical Society announces the newest recipients of 54 historical and cultural heritage large grants ($10,001 and up) in 29 counties, totaling $4,629,725 for FY2017. The grants, awarded once each fiscal year, are made possible by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment.

Grant applications were recommended by the Historic Resources Advisory Committee, a volunteer panel made up of citizens from around the state, as specified by legislation. The MNHS Executive Council approved the recommendations at their October 27 meeting.

“What we do today preserves Minnesota history for future Minnesotans,” said Carolyn Veeser-Egbide, grants manager for the Minnesota Historical Society. “The awards from this latest grant round have an assortment of history and preservation projects that will take place around the great state of Minnesota. It is exciting to see Minnesotans enthusiastic about preserving our history.”

Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grant Large Grant Recipients in Fillmore County: City of Lanesboro, $179,400. Bethlehem Lutheran Church Hall Rehabilitation: To hire qualified professionals to repair the Bethlehem Lutheran Church Hall, listed in the National Register of Historic Places and used as the Sons of Norway Heimbygda Lodge.

The Minnesota Historical Society received a legislative appropriation of $11.525 million for the 2016-2017 biennium for the Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grants: $5,525,000 for FY 2016 and $6,000,000 for FY 2017.

Grants are available for history and historic preservation projects in two tiers. Small grants of $10,000 or less are awarded quarterly. The next two small grants deadlines are Jan. 13, 2017 and April 14, 2017. Applications for large grants are awarded once in each fiscal year of the biennium. Pending Legislature funding approval, the next deadline for the large round is a mandatory pre-application due on July 21, 2017. All grants are administered through a competitive process using professional standards and criteria.
