Historic New England is excited to announce our annual Community Preservation Grants, with awards of $1,000 in each of the six New England states. We award these grants to small to mid-sized non-profit organizations that align with our mission by preserving and sharing New England heritage.
The 2016 Community Preservation Grants are awarded to:
- Warner House Association in Portsmouth to support a textile care workshop for small museums held at the New Hampshire Historical Society in Concord.
- Tomaquag Museum in Exeter for an oral history video project with ninety-five-year-old Chief Strong Horse, an elder of the Narragansett Tribe.
- Root District Game Club in Norwich toward matching a grant for foundation repair for the 1937 one-room Root Schoolhouse.
We invite organizations to apply for a Community Preservation Grant every summer. Let us know if you’d like to be notified when next year’s application is available.
