Mini-Grants Now Available for SoMD Heritage
These funds are made available to non-profits and government organizations inside the Heritage Area that seek to promote heritage tourism and economic development. Heritage tourism is defined as traveling to experience the places that authentically represent the stories and people of the past and present – including historic, cultural and natural resources.
The Southern Maryland Heritage Area is made up of large portions of Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s Counties. Anyone who may wish to submit an application should send an Email to: SoMdHeritage@tccsmd.org with the word “Mini-Grant” in the subject line. You may briefly describe your planned project in the email and note your contact information. An application and other details will be sent to you via return email.
The deadline for your email is: end of day Thursday August 23, 2012.
All those who wish to learn more about membership or future grant offerings should contact the Consortium at 301-274-4083, or by email, SoMdHeritage@tccsmd.org.
