About the African American Heritage Preservation Program
The African American Heritage Preservation Program (AAHPP) provides grants to assist in the preservation of buildings, sites, or communities of historical and cultural importance to the African American experience in Maryland. The AAHPP is administered as a partnership between the Maryland Historical Trust (MHT) and the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture (MCAAHC). The program typically receives an annual appropriation of $1,000,000 for grants per year.
The AAHPP provides capital grants to nonprofits (state and federal government entities may apply as nonprofits), local governments, businesses and individuals for eligible projects. All applicants except for nonprofit organizations are required to provide a dollar-for-dollar match.
The Maryland Commission on African American Heritage and Culture and the Maryland Historical Trust are hosting webinars for prospective applicants.
