Grant Workshops – African American Heritage Preservation Program


The African American Heritage Preservation Program (AAHPP) provides capital grants up to $100,000 to assist in the preservation of buildings, sites, or communities of historical and cultural importance to the African American experience in Maryland.

Local governments, along with non-profit agencies, business, and individuals are eligible to apply.

Grant funds can be applied to costs for:

  • rehabilitation
  • restoration
  • acquisition
  • pre-construction
  • new construction projects

This competitive program, offered once per year, is supported through an annual appropriation from the Maryland General Assembly, and is administered as a joint partnership of the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture (MCAAHC) and the Maryland Historical Trust (MHT).
