Four Rivers: The Heritage Area of Annapolis, London Town & South County offers an extraordinary wealth of historic, cultural, and natural resources to visitors and residents alike. Experience a place where heritage is protected and shared, and where the traditions of the land and the water continue to shape our lives.
“Most visitors don’t want ‘cookie-cutter’ experiences. They seek out unique, authentic, and immersive experiences that reveal something new. Come see all the amazing sights and sounds that our area has to offer.”
— Carol Benson, Executive Director
Four Rivers Heritage Area is pleased to announce two grant opportunities this spring!
FY18 Maryland Heritage Areas Authority (MHAA) Grant Application
The application materials for the FY 2018 grant round are now available on the Maryland Historical Trust’s website:
http://mht.maryland.gov/grants.shtml – (use Internet Explorer, Firefox or another browser that is not Chrome). NOTE: Click on the “To begin a new application, Click here” link in the middle of the page to begin an Intent to Apply form.
As in previous years, applicants will begin with the Intent to Apply form, which is due January 27. Once they have submitted that form, they will be provided access to the non-capital or capital project full application form, which will then be due on March 1. The Intent to Apply form does not obligate the applicant to complete a full application. See our Grants page for more information.
Award amounts typically range from a maximum $50,000 for non-capital and programming projects and a maximum of $100,000 for capital projects. All grants must be matched in an amount at least equal to the grant (dollar-for-dollar match). A portion of this match may be with in-kind services, such as volunteer time, donated professional services, and donated materials.
Please plan to attend a grant workshop or webinar! These sessions are an opportunity to learn more about the FY 2018 grant program and the online application. You will also have the chance to ask any questions you may have about the program.
