The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) announces a new round of its highly successful Historic and Cultural Resources grant program. The grant is designed to help organizations and municipalities with projects that preserve, protect, interpret, promote or market historic and cultural resources. Grants may range from $500 to $4,000.
Since 2003, TLGV has awarded more than $1 million in historic and cultural preservation grants to organizations throughout The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor, which spans 35 towns and cities from Preston, CT in the south to East Brookfield, MA in the north. TLGV is a non-profit, member-supported organization charged with oversight of The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor by the National Park Service.
“The history of the National Heritage Corridor is rich and varied,” said Lois Bruinooge, executive director of TLGV. “Our history really is American history, but some of it is in danger of being lost. These grants can help preserve it.”
The deadline for applications is 4 p.m. July 26. All applications must be received or postmarked by the deadline. Applications should be sent to LyAnn Graff at email@example.com or mailed to P.O. Box 29, Danielson CT, 06239-0029.
Successful applications will be for projects producing tangible and lasting benefits, and can include interpretive projects, marketing and promotional activities, collections inventories, assessments or conservation measures, and structural or mechanical repairs and upgrades. Creative and innovative approaches are encouraged. Funds will be dispersed on a reimbursement basis and must be matched 1:1 by cash or in-kind contributions.
All grant applications will be reviewed by a committee and then approved by TLGV’s Executive Committee and/or Board of Directors.
