New African American Heritage Grants Offered by Harford

Harford County will accept applications in July for its new African American Heritage Grant Program.

Grants will fund projects that contribute to the research, preservation, and interpretation of local African American history. Individuals, nonprofits, businesses, and local governments may apply.

“This year marks two important firsts in Harford County,” County Executive Barry Glassman said. “I have declared Juneteenth a county government holiday in honor of its historical significance, and we are launching the county’s first grant program to preserve African American history for future generations.”

According to the County press release:

Funding can be used to restore a resource that is eligible for or listed as a Harford County Historic Landmark, and for preservation planning services, architectural and archeological surveys, research, interpretation, and programming.

The application period opens on Friday, July 1 and closes at 4 p.m. on Friday, July 29, 2022.

More information about the grant, full eligibility requirements, and applications are on the county website.
