Historical sites to receive $750,000 in grants in Alabama


The Alabama Historical Commission (AHC) is administering a $750,000 state-funded grant program for improvements as well as educational programming at historic sites across the Yellowhammer State.

According to the AHC, grants will be awarded to public or private entities who own and operate historic sites in Alabama. They will also be awarded to entities that reflect an education-based mission, concentrate on educational programming, and reflect the geographical diversity of the state. Preference will be given to publicly-owned battlefields or structures constructed prior to 1840 that are listed in the National Register of Historic Places – NPS, and historic school structures

Grant amounts will not exceed $20,000 for any one entity.

Deadline to submit an application is August 15.
