Heritage Trust Fund Workshops

Workshops are scheduled each spring and summer to provide information about grant opportunities offered by the Kansas Historical Society and Kansas Humanities Council. The Kansas Historical Society will present information on the Heritage Trust Fund grant program. The Kansas Humanities Council will discuss grants for documentary films, exhibitions, oral history projects, photo/artifact preservation projects, and more. Each workshop will provide valuable information about the grant application procedures and grant administration requirements of both agencies.

Attendance at one of the workshops is highly recommended for those planning to apply for a grant from either agency in the coming year. There is no cost to attend. Advanced registration is encouraged, but not required. We only ask that you let us know if you plan to attend so we may contact you in the event of a cancellation and to provide sufficient seating. Please contact 785-272-8681, ext. 240; cultural_resources@kshs.org to be placed on the attendance list.

Workshops scheduled for 2014 have concluded. Missed the workshops? These two presentations may help you better understand the HTF grant program and how to complete the grant application process.

Workshops for 2015 will be announced in early spring 2015.

The Heritage Trust Fund (HTF) is a program that provides matching funds for the preservation of properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places or the Register of Historic Kansas Places. This is a competitive grant program, in which applicants compete for the funds that are available each year.

Grant application workshops are held each year in the summer months. Each workshop includes information on applying for a grant and the administration of a grant, should your project be funded.
