About the Essex Heritage Partnership Grant Program
The Essex National Heritage Commission’s Partnership Grant Program is a matching grant program created to foster and support the stewardship activities of organizations that share the Commission’s mission to preserve and promote the historic, cultural and natural resources of the Essex National Heritage Area.
Impacting many in the region, the 15-year old program has provided more than $1.6 million to municipalities and nonprofit heritage organizations that steward the region’s nationally significant heritage.
2013 Partnership Grant Program
Through its 2013 Partnership Grant Program, Essex Heritage will fulfill a strategic priority by awarding $1,500 grants to ten (10) qualified applicants who apply for funding in one of three categories:
- Education: Create or further develop educational opportunities for youth
- Interpretation: Increase awareness and understanding of the region’s heritage
- Preservation: Preserve or enhance historic structures, landscapes and cultural resources
Essex Heritage will accept applications for eligible projects online only until 11:59 PM on Sunday, February 17, 2013. Once submitted, an application can be revised anytime until the deadline. All applicants will be notified by late March regarding the status of their application. Once designated to receive funding, grant recipients will be required to execute a grant contract which will outline match-funding requirements, grant reporting and other responsibilities. All funded projects must be completed and all reports and financial documentation submitted to Essex Heritage by June 30, 2014.
