Indiana Humanities and Indiana Landmarks offer Historic Preservation Education Grants to Indiana nonprofits, providing them with funds to develop and implement public programs that educate Indiana citizens about historic places and properties—and particularly about the need to preserve and protect them. Programs may come in a variety of formats—workshops, presentations, booklets, brochures, reading/discussion programs, exhibitions, film documentaries and more—and we're increasingly interested in supporting digital projects, such as online exhibits, webinars and podcasts, that expand outreach and educate even more people about the value of historic preservation.

Funding for Historic Preservation Education Grants is provided by Indiana Humanities (through the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities) and Indiana Landmarks.
