Black cultural assets are undervalued and underfunded. Since the inception of the National Trust’s African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund in 2017, preservation groups have submitted 4,847 funding proposals requesting $567M in funding. The need to protect these heritage sites continues to grow which is why the Action Fund has stepped in to narrow these gaps through its innovative national grant program.
Whether it’s the historic home of an American hero, a sacred house of worship, a Modernist structure or a Historically Black College & University (HBCUs), we want to know about it. Action Fund grants support preservation work in five primary areas: Capital Projects, Endowment and Financial Sustainability, Organizational Capacity Building, Project Planning, and Programming and Interpretation.
