Do you know a historic Black church that needs funding to strengthen its capital, staffing, and operations? Let them know that they may be eligible for a Preserving Black Churches grant, a new preservation project from the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund.

Grants from Preserving Black Churches are intended to preserve historic Black houses of worship (with either active or non-active congregations) and advance ongoing preservation activities.

With grants ranging from $50,000 to $200,000, the funding will help historic congregations, preservation organizations, and community groups better steward, manage, and use their historic structures.

The first step to apply for a grant from Preserving Black Churches is to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI). The LOI submission process is officially open. Submit your online application by Friday, September 2, 2022. If accepted, a full application will be requested.
