Support of Local History Organizations
This funding supports and ensures the success of the ACHF-funded Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grants Program. The Society seeks out potential grant applicants, leads statewide grant-writing workshops and webinars, and helps applicants with technical information critical to submitting a successful grant application, as well as supporting recipients throughout the life of their projects.
To assure transparency and measurable outcomes of projects, grants staff conducts onsite visits required by the Minnesota Office of Grants Management and, at the end of the fiscal year, staff closes out and accounts for all funds awarded.
Programs. $4,800,000 the first year and $4,800,000 the second year are for programs and purposes related to the historical and cultural heritage of the state of Minnesota, conducted by the Minnesota Historical Society.
