Hudson River Valley Quadricentennial Legacy Grant Program
Throughout 2009, New York State, along with Vermont and Quebec, celebrated the Hudson Fulton Champlain Quadricentennial. In an effort to encourage a lasting legacy for future generations, the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area will distribute federal Quadricentennial funds to Hudson Valley communities to develop programs and events that focus on continuing the legacy of those efforts.
The Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area program was established by Congress in 1996 to recognize, preserve, protect and interpret the nationally significant cultural and natural resources of the Hudson River Valley for the benefit of the Nation. Federal Quadricentennial funding for this grant program has been received and will be administered by the Hudson River Valley Greenway, the Management Entity for the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area.
The Hudson River Valley Greenway is the Management Entity of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area.
This program is intended to fund local Hudson River Valley projects, programs, and events that preserve and sustain the legacy of the Hudson River Valley Quadricentennial. Total funding of this program is $50,000. The grants will be limited to $2,500 to $5,000 and must be matched dollar for dollar by the recipient.
- Contribute to a lasting legacy for the Quadricentennial;
- Support historic preservation, conservation, recreation, interpretation, tourism marketing, or community development projects and programs within the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area;
- Relate to the mission of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area; and
- Encourage participation by communities or non-profits in the region.
This grant program will provide dollar for dollar matching grants, on a reimbursement basis for projects that meet the above criteria. The 50% local match may be provided in the form of an in-kind or monetary contribution.
