The DC Community Heritage Project Grant workshops will be held on April 2nd and April 9th at the Takoma Park Library and the Lamond Riggs Library respectively. Each workshop begins at 6pm and lasts about an hour.
The workshop is for anyone interested in preserving the history of Washington, DC’s landmarks, neighborhoods, and cultures. It serves as an opportunity to get to know your history-minded neighbors, discuss potential projects, and learn how to obtain grant funding from Humanities DC and the Historic Preservation Office. The DC Community Heritage Project grant is awarded annually in the amount of $2500 for 12-15 projects.
Many past DCCHP grantees had never considered applying for grant funding before learning how accessible and community-focused the program is. Don’t miss this opportunity to finally get your oral history project, historic building survey, walking tour, documentary film, or other preservation-focused project off the ground!
All first time DCCHP grant applicants are strongly encouraged (though not required) to attend a workshop. The session will feature a detailed tour of the application as well as a look at how reviewers assess proposals. If you would like to begin an application, go to http://grantapplication.wdchumanities.org to get started. The workshops are identical, so you only need to sign up for one. There is no cost to attend.
Please contact Jasper Collier at jcollier[at]wdchumanities[dot]org for more information. We hope to see you there!
