The Minnesota Historical Society today announced 48 recipients of Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grants of up to $7,000 each and four new Partnership Grants totaling $155,410. The grants are being awarded in dozens of counties across the state to help local organizations preserve and share Minnesota history.
The Society also reminds interested applicants that the next grants deadline is January 11, 2013, which may be the final deadline for this 2012-2013 biennium depending upon available funds. The Grants Manual is available at legacy.mnhs.org/grants. Applications are accepted only through the Society’s grants portal at grants.mnhs.org.
“Every year, we receive hundreds of grant proposals for the cause of history and historic preservation,” said David Grabitske, manager of outreach services for the Minnesota Historical Society. “We review each proposal to ensure the project meets established criteria and will preserve and enhance Minnesota’s cultural and historical resources. This latest round of grants wisely uses the power of history to transform lives and communities, while building a legacy for Minnesota.”
