The DCCHP grant supports projects that document and preserve the history of Washington, DC’s unique neighborhoods, landmarks and cultures. The grant is part of a larger partnership between Humanities DC and the DC Historic Preservation Office that has included House History workshops, capacity building programs, and the annual grantee showcase in December.

We hope that with this additional time, more people will seek the critical funding they need to tell the stories of their communities. For more information please contact Jasper Collier at or call 202-387-8391.
