Since 1991, the History Colorado State Historical Fund (SHF) has awarded more than $330 Million in grant funding to 5000 historic preservation and archaeology projects across Colorado. With grant-funded projects in all 64 Colorado counties, the results of this work are felt across the state with an estimated $3 billion in economic impact. Beyond the economic impact, the State Historical Fund has been instrumental in saving the places Coloradans love.

History Colorado is seeking an innovative, thoughtful and visionary leader to serve as the next State Historical Fund Director. With an impressive 30+-year program reputation, a highly skilled staff, and deeply committed organizational leadership, the next State Historical Fund Director will be well positioned to implement what is an ambitious agenda for the future of the program.

Beginning in 2021, the State Historical Fund cash match requirements, application and grant review process was significantly revise in order to elevate and place more emphasis on supporting historic preservation projects that are developed with, by and for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities in Colorado.
The next Director will be responsible for continuing and deepening this work through inclusive and community-focused grant making. One area of primary importance is continued excellence in identifying and funding high quality historic preservation and archaeology projects, however, the next Director should also work with the team to find opportunities to invest in rural prosperity, addressing housing supply and affordability challenges via rehabilitation of historic properties, “greening” historic places, and diversifying the National and State Registers through survey by designating grants for resources associated with underrepresented communities.
