National Trust for Historic Preservation: Telling the Full History Preservation Fun

The National Trust for Historic Preservation, a public-interest organization dedicated to saving America’s historic places, has launched Telling the Full History Preservation Fund, a one-time grant program that aims to interpret and preserve historic places that are especially important to underrepresented communities including women, immigrants, Asian Americans, Black Americans, Latinx Americans, Native Americans, and LGBTQA communities.

The grants will work to support the core activities of humanities-based organizations as the organizations recover from the pandemic and use historic places as catalysts for a more just and equitable society. Along with the grant funding, National Trust staff will provide technical assistance to grantees.

The grant program will provide $25,000 and $50,000 grants to nonprofit humanities-based organizations, accredited public and colleges and universities, as well as state, local, and tribal governmental agencies. Funding will be awarded in the following categories: research, planning, and implementation of humanities-based public interpretive programs that use diverse historical places to tell the full history of the United States; humanities-based research and documentation to enable local, state, and federal landmark designations to recognize places of importance to underrepresented communities; architectural design and planning to advance preservation and activation of historic buildings and landscapes that tell the full history of the United States; and humanities-based training workshops to support underrepresented groups in preserving and interpreting historic places that tell the full history of the United States.
