BISMARCK – North Dakota’s history agency has awarded $134,000 in Cultural Heritage Grants to distribute for the coming year to 24 eligible organizations throughout the state. A total of 65 organizations from all areas of North Dakota applied for the grants from the State Historical Society, requesting a total of $540,000.

Under the guidelines, a maximum of $20,000 is available per grant, with a dollar-for-dollar match requirement. That match may be either in cash or in-kind services. Funding for this round of grants was approved by the 2009 Legislative Assembly.

“We are delighted with the tremendous response to this program,” said Merl Paaverud, Director of the State Historical Society of North Dakota. “It was a challenging task to review and make the choices from so many outstanding proposals, and shows the real need locally for this kind of support. We hope to continue the State Historical Society’s grant program in the future, and appreciate the efforts of the North Dakota Legislature in making it a reality.”
