The African American Heritage Preservation Program (AAHPP) was established by the General Assembly in 2010 to provide capital grants to assist in the preservation of buildings, sites, or communities of historical and cultural importance to the African American experience in Maryland. The AAHPP is administered as a partnership between the Maryland Historical Trust and the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture (MCAAHC) .
The Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture and the Maryland Historical Trust awarded $1 million to assist African American heritage preservation projects for FY2018. A brief summary of the projects is available here. For information on grants for FY2019 visit: https://mht.maryland.gov/grants_africanamerican.shtml.
