NOTE: The final grants for this initiative were awarded in 2007.
Campus Heritage Grants were designed to assist colleges and universities in the United States in managing and preserving the integrity of their significant historic buildings, sites, and landscapes. Projects supported through this special initiative focused on the research and survey of historic resources, preparation of preservation master plans, and development of detailed conservation assessments.
Since 2002, the Campus Heritage Initiative has supported preservation efforts for 86 historic campuses across the country; nationwide surveys of independent colleges and of historically black universities and colleges; and a national conference on campus preservation issues. The initiative has awarded grants totaling more than $13.5 million.
