Maryland Heritage Areas Authority Grants are Coming Up
The Maryland Heritage Areas Authority (MHAA) is pleased to announce that MHAA is now seeking applications for its FY 2022 grants cycle, and “Intent to Apply” forms are due this month. MHAA provides dollar-for-dollar matching grants for capital and non-capital projects located within Maryland’s 13 certified heritage areas. Non-profit organizations, local jurisdictions, state agencies, and federal agencies are all eligible to apply.
Non-capital MHAA grants are awarded for up to $50,000 per project, while capital MHAA grants are awarded for up to $100,000 per project. Projects seeking less than $5,000 in grant funding are not eligible for MHAA project grants. MHAA requires that both capital and non-capital projects support heritage tourism-related activities or infrastructure. An “Intent to Apply” form is due on January 29, 2021. Full applications are due online in late February, March, and April of 2021. Deadlines for the full applications are set by each of the 13 heritage areas for their applicants. Grant awards will be announced in July of 2021.
