The Patapsco Valley Heritage Area (PVHA) Mini-Grant Program is designed to assist heritage-related sites, organizations and municipalities to develop new and innovative programs, partnerships, exhibits, tours, events, and other initiatives consistent with the regional goals and objectives stated within our state and county approved Management Plan. The program, administered by Patapsco Heritage Greenway (PHG), encourages proposals that include collaborative partnerships, enhance preservation, encourage stewardship of natural resources, and promote heritage tourism.
This year, PHG received nearly $37,000 in grant requests for the Mini-Grant Program. The Program is funded by a $25,000 grant from the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority. This year’s awardees were chosen through a competitive process.
