41 mid-size and large grants made possible by the Legacy Amendment are awarded to organizations

in 23 counties throughout Minnesota for projects of enduring value



ST. PAUL, Minn. –The Minnesota Historical Society announces the newest recipients of 41 mid-size ($10,001 - $50,000) and large ($50,001 and up) grants in 23 counties totaling $3.57 million. Mid-size and large grants are awarded once each fiscal year; they provide an unprecedented opportunity for non-profit and educational organizations, government units and tribal organizations to preserve and share the state’s history and cultural heritage.

“Many grants approved in this round fund planning and research, essential first steps in any successful history project,” said David Grabitske, manager of outreach services for the Minnesota Historical Society. “Minnesota citizens expect that projects will be done to the highest standards, so I am delighted to see the right steps being taken at the outset to ensure end results will have enduring value.”

Each Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grant project will preserve and enhance Minnesota’s cultural and historical resources. The competitive grants are awarded according to program guidelines and criteria and professional standards.
