Here at Preservation Leadership Forum we're trying something new on Forum Connect – Ask Me Anything. We'll be asking people, whether around here at the National Trust or in the preservation field at large, to sign on to Forum Connect daily for a week to answer your questions about the work they do. These folks will make a point of coming to Forum Connect daily for a week to respond to your posts.
Starting this series is Diana Maxwell, Manager of Grants at the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Diana also was our speaker for a recent Webinar on this topic last month, you can access it here.
Diana will be available to answer your questions for the week ending January 11.
Colleen Danz your Forum Connect Community Manager
Hi! This is Diana… go ahead ask me anything, well anything about the grants program here at the Trust! For instance, our Preservation Fund grant applications are due February 1 while our African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund Letters of Intent are due next week-January 15. I'll do my best to answer questions about preservation funding in general, though I don't know the ins/outs of that world as well as I know what's going on here at the National Trust (If you do, chime in!). But feel free to ask me what sort of funding our program covers, how we work with grant recipients, and other questions you may have. And if you've received a National Trust grant, let me know!
I hope that I can answer your questions and get to know more of you out there on Forum Connect!
