Minnesota Historical and Cultural Grants Program 2012
Through a competitive process, the Minnesota Historical and Cultural Grants Program awards grants to historical organizations statewide to support projects of enduring value for the cause of history and historic preservation. Each of the more than 500 active historical organizations in Minnesota serves an important role in preserving significant stories of the people and events of Minnesota. As required by law, the Minnesota Historical Society appoints a citizen advisory panel, the Historic Resources Advisory Committee, to guide grant decisions for the Historical and Cultural Grants Program. The committee's recommendations are reviewed by the Society's governing board. Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grants Program details and application materials
