The Mississippi Delta National Heritage Area (MDNHA) Grants Program has announced proposal writing workshops! The MDNHA grants program issues medium grants to organizations and individuals who do projects around five themes: The River and The Land, The Blues, Freedom, Creativity Beyond Cotton, and Diverse Communities. Successful projects address one or more of four main goals:

  • Perpetuate the unique culture of the Mississippi Delta through engagement of the people who live here to preserve, celebrate, and share the places and stories of the region;
  • Save historic and natural resources by raising awareness of the threat of their loss, providing recognition for saving places and directing resources to training, education, and preservation.
  • Build a heritage area-wide network of partners by providing opportunities for engagement in a variety of roles;
  • Contribute to sustainable economic development through activities that will strengthen local and regional economies.
