Minnesota Historical Society gives away $10 million in grants
From preserving historic buildings to installing interpretive history markers along roadsides, Minnesotans now have access to more than $10 million for the cause of history and historic preservation through the Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grants.
The Minnesota Historical Society, the organization responsible for administering the grants, recently announced 49 recipients from across the state, of the September Small and Structured Grants of up to $7,000. The Society also announced the next deadline for Small and Structured Grants is January 13, 2012. The Grants Manual is available at www.mnhs.org/legacygrants with all applications being accepted only through the Society’s new grants portal at www.grants.mnhs.org.

The amendment supports efforts to preserve Minnesota land, water and legacy, including our state’s history and cultural heritage....
