Grant Awarded for Archaeological Dig
Friday, November 19, 2010
St. Cloud State will receive one of 56 Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grants for the fiscal year 2011. The $56,050 grant will initiate research at five adjacent archaeological sites in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, which will inform an eventual National Register of Historic Places nomination.
The Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund Grants are made possible by the passage of the 2008 Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment. The amendment supports efforts to preserve Minnesota land, water and legacy, including our state’s history and cultural heritage.
Grants are available for history and historic preservation projects in three tiers: small or “Fast Track” grants of $7,000 or less, mid-size grants between $7,000 and $50,000, and large grants of more than $50,000. Each grant will preserve and enhance Minnesota’s cultural and historical resources.
