Accepting Applications for the DC Community Heritage Project
The DC Community Heritage Project puts the power of the past in the hands of the local historians who preserve, protect, and live it every day. At the root of the DC Community Heritage Project are the philosophies of historic preservation and the power of the urban landscape to shape our cultures and our lives. Projects must demonstrate a connectedness to some aspect of DC’s geography or built environment with the best projects seeking to explore how the city’s buildings, streets, neighborhoods, landmarks, parks, and infrastructure have influenced its history.
Since 2007, these small grants have afforded communities, neighborhood organizations, churches, and others the chance to tell their stories through public humanities projects such as: written publications, documentary films, websites, lesson plans, tours, and many more.
