New Survey Asks How Cultural, Historical, and Heritage Organizations are Affected by COVID
The Maryland Historical Trust (MHT) and the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority (MHAA) organizations doing cultural, historical, and natural heritage work around the state. How has your organization been impacted by COVID-19 and the resulting changes to the economy and daily life?
Based on results from a similar survey in 2020, MHT and MHAA grant programs extended reporting deadlines and began accepting secure electronic signatures on grant documents. MHAA also held an emergency grant round to distribute more than $600,000 in operating funds and allowed grantees to use their existing MHAA grants for operating, if needed. With updated information, MHT and MHAA can better understand how Maryland’s cultural, historical, and natural resource-related heritage organizations continue to be affected by the pandemic. As in 2020, survey results will also help MHT and MHAA identify ways to help. Please complete the brief survey linked below by March 12, and share the survey with your networks.
