Minnesota Historical Society awards $1,462,500 in Mid-size and Large Grants funded by the Legacy Amendment

Posted in State of Minnesota



ST. PAUL (Jan. 27, 2010) - Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grants continue to provide much needed funds to organizations throughout the state. The Minnesota Historical Society today announced the first 27 recipients of Mid-size and Large Grants for fiscal year 2010. An additional 56 organizations received $248,787 in Fast Track Grants, for a total of $1,711,287 awarded for projects of enduring value. More than 50 communities throughout Minnesota will benefit from the grants.

Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grants are made possible by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund with passage of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment by the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008. The amendment supports efforts to preserve Minnesota land, water and legacy, including our state's history and cultural heritage.

"These grants provide new life for important projects around the state - especially this first round of Mid-size and Large Grants," said Britta Bloomberg, deputy state historic preservation officer. "From creating exhibits to publishing books and preserving historic properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places, we are excited about the impact these grants will have on the future of our state's historic and cultural resources."
