We, at Preservation Alliance of Baltimore County, are especially very thankful this year to have received generous funding from our Grantors. Without our latest, and second round of, granting from National Endowment for the Humanities and Maryland Humanities SHARP Recovery funds, it would be very be very hard sustain our operations in the coming year.
We also greatly appreciate this year’s other grants, which we highlighted in our previous newsletter, from the Baltimore County government, in partnership with the Baltimore Community Foundation, for a COVID-19 Nonprofit Recovery Grant Fund, as well as the Maryland Arts Council for an Emergency Grant, made possible by the Maryland General Assembly’s passage of the RELIEF Act of 2021. Due to our loss of revenue over the past year and a half, it would be extremely difficult for us to operate without this funding.
Preservation Alliance of Baltimore County was thrilled and grateful to announce that we have received a grant from Maryland Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the 2021 SHARP Recovery funds
With SHARP Recovery funding, Preservation Alliance of Baltimore County/the Baltimore County Historical Trust was able to continue our work of safeguarding Baltimore County’s historic resources through restoration work, to provide small grants to non-profits and limited-income Senior Citizens homeowners for restoration projects, to be a spokesperson for our historic buildings, and National Register/County Landmark nominations and oversight; in order to increase the number of historic sites that are preserved and protected. This will directly advance our mission of being dedicated to preserving Baltimore County’s unique heritage of buildings, sites, landscapes, towns and neighborhoods.
We vigorously thank Maryland Humanities, The National Endowment for the Humanities, our Federal Congressional Delegation, our Maryland State Delegates and Senators, and Governor Hogan for their continued support and generosity.
