HBCU Cultural Heritage Stewardship Initiative 

10-16-2020 18:00

The National Trust for Historic Preservation recently launched the HBCU Cultural Heritage Stewardship Initiative as part of our African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund . This program is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Ford Foundation, the JPB Foundation, the J.M. Kaplan Fund, and The Executive Leadership Council. The program intends to strengthen the stewardship capacity of HBCUs and to ensure these vital institutions are equipped to preserve and maintain their deeply significant historic buildings, landscapes, and other assets. Learn more about the initiative: https://savingplaces.org/hbcu.

Through the Initiative, the National Trust will partner with up to eight HBCUs to provide grant funding to support the development of new campus-wide and individual site Cultural Heritage Stewardship Plans.

Join the National Trust and the National Endowment for the Humanities to learn more about the Initiative, its grant program, and how to apply. The full grant guidelines, criteria, and application can be found here: http://Forum.savingplaces.org/hbcu-guidelines
