MHAA Grants

Historic buildings, sites, and districts; distinctive natural landscapes; museums; parks; and other arts and cultural resources located in Certified Heritage Areas (non-profit or local government entities) are eligible to receive Maryland Heritage Area Authority (MHAA) grants for capital and non-capital projects.  Grant applicants must be physically located in the county's designated heritage areas, roughly speaking, the Agricultural Reserve, the Sandy Spring area, the City of Rockville, and along the C&O Canal and B&O Railroad Line.  (For specific boundaries, see the HM Management Plan or contact the HM office.) 

Grants range from $5,000 to $50,000 for non-capital projects and $5,000 to $100,000 for capital projects and all require a 75% cash match. 

 

Grants are submitted to MHAA through the local heritage areas (i.e. Heritage Montgomery) where they are reviewed and ranked prior to final submission to the state.
