Preservation grant to Baltimore Heritage
The National Trust for Historic Preservation said this week that it awarded an $80,000 matching grant to preservation group Baltimore Heritage Inc. to help traditionally African-American neighborhoods with new transit development.
The grant is part of $5 million awarded to 21 state and local preservation groups across the country through the nonprofit trust's Partners in the Field grant program. Recipients were given grants to help property owners, developers, local officials and others working to enhance communities through historic preservation and economic revitalization.
Baltimore Heritage, a citywide nonprofit group, focuses on preserving historic architecture and neighborhoods.
