The Chinese Historical Society of New England was awarded a 2020 Community Preservation Grant. The funds supported the purchase of archival storage materials and a scanner to digitize the organization’s important collection, which includes this untitled painting by Mong Q. Lee.

Historic New England annually awards grants to one small to medium-sized nonprofit organization in each New England state to support projects that save and share their communities’ diverse history and culture as part of telling the whole story of New England. 

In 2021, six Community Preservation Grants of $1,250 each will be awarded.

501(c)3 non-profit organizations based in New England may apply. The deadline is Monday, August 9, 2021. Award recipients will be announced in the fall.
