AACR Grants Announced

07 Apr 2020 10:12 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

We are excited to announce $14 million in African American Civil Rights Historic Preservation Fund grants to fund 51 projects across 20 states and the District of Columbia. These projects will preserve sites and history related to the African American struggle for equality in the 20th century. Grant-supported projects include surveys and documentation, interpretation and education, oral histories, architectural services, historic structure reports, planning, and physical preservation.

Projects receiving grants this year will preserve resources, places, and stories like the Shepard Library at Stillman College, the Albert Kahn House in Detroit, Michigan, and the Greenwood Center buildings in Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Grant projects also include surveys across the country from Montgomery, Alabama to Muskegon, Michigan to identify lesser-known civil rights sites.

We've provided a breakdown of all 51 projects in a table at the bottom of this email. For more information about the African American Civil Rights Grant Program visit the program page on our website.
