The Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area (HCWHA), a certified heritage area encompassing parts of Carroll, Frederick and Washington counties, announces its FY19 mini-grant program.

The Heart of the Civil War is offering competitive mini-grants between $500 and $5,000 to heritage sites, nonprofit organizations, and government units to develop new and innovative programs, partnerships, exhibits, tours, events, and other heritage tourism-related initiatives that are consistent with the goals and priorities stated in the HCWHA management plan (available at heartofthecivilwar.org). Grant-funded projects must take place within the geographic boundaries of the heritage area.

Two free half-day grant workshops will be held in September for grant seekers. Friday, September 14 at the Mount Airy Public Library and Tuesday, September 18 at the Greenbrier State Park Auditorium. Both workshop sessions cover the same material and participants are welcome to attend all or some of the sessions. Participants are encouraged to register online or by emailing Emily Huebner at emily@heartofthecivilwar.org. Attendance is encouraged but not required for applicants to both of the Heritage Area’s grant programs. Mini-grant applications are due by Friday, October 26, 2018, and larger state Project Grants will have a winter, 2019 deadline.

The mini-grant guidelines and application form are available online at heartofthecivilwar.org. Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact Emily Huebner, HCWHA Assistant Director to discuss grant projects or application questions.
