Grants from the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund are designed to advance ongoing preservation activities for historic places such as sites, museums, and landscapes representing African American cultural heritage. The fund supports work in four primary areas: Capital Projects, Organizational Capacity Building, Project Planning, and Programming and Interpretation.
Grants made from the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund will range from $50,000 to $150,000. In 2020, the National Trust awarded $1.6 million to 27 projects. Since establishing the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund’s National Grant Program in 2017, the National Trust has invested $4.3 million in 67 diverse preservation projects across the country.
