The broader aim of the IHS Heritage Support Grants is for local history organizations to become stronger cultural assets, enabling the communities they serve to embrace the special stories that set them apart.

Through fundraising education, coaching assistance and panel participation, staff and volunteers of local history organizations will gain proficiency with fundraising and grant writing. Local History Services will offer a series of workshops to assist grant applicants. Attendance at workshops is not a prerequisite to apply, nor is being an IHS Local History Partner member.
