Historic Preservation Education Grant

Indiana Humanities

Relevent Country: United States of America

The Indiana Humanities has launched the Historic Preservation Education Grant to help promote knowledge of their state’s historic places and the many benefits of preservation, Indiana Humanities, and Indiana landmarks have joined together to offer Historic Preservation Education Grants to Indiana-based tax-exempt organizations.

Goals: Historic Education Preservation Grant programs may come in a variety of formats—workshops, presentations, booklets, brochures, reading/discussion programs, exhibitions, film documentaries and more—and they’re increasingly interested in supporting digital projects, such as online exhibits, webinars and podcasts, that expand outreach and educate even more people about the value of historic preservation.
