History Colorado awards Colorado nonprofits, communities and historic places more than $4 million in first-round State Historical Fund grants

DENVER, Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- History Colorado has announced the funding of 43 grants for historic preservation projects, totaling more than $4.4 million through the State Historical Fund (SHF) grants program. This is the first in a series of grant award rounds that will take place during History Colorado's fiscal year 2014-15.  In the last two decades, History Colorado through SHF has invested more than $262 million in more than 4,000 preservation projects in Colorado communities in all 64 counties.

History Colorado State Historical Fund grants offer nonprofit organizations the opportunity to direct their funding toward a specific mission—like the Providence Network, which operates out of Denver’s historic 1892 Sayre’s Alhambra building.

This grant round supports projects that run the gamut—from disaster recovery and prevention at the Lyons Depot Library and Trinidad's Holy Trinity Church to rehabilitation of buildings that share Colorado's diverse cultural stories, such as Brighton's Bromley/Koizuma Hishinuma Farm, San Luis' Montoya Ranch, and Denver's Beth Hamedrosh Hagodol Synagogue.

SHF grants offer nonprofit organizations the opportunity to direct their funding toward a specific mission—like the Providence Network, which operates out of Denver's historic 1892 Sayre's Alhambra building. For the last 25 years, Providence Network has provided guidance and support to impoverished men, women and families suffering from addictions, abuse and homelessness. This year's grant will allow the Providence Network to continue supporting this mission for another 25 years.

Curious about what's been funded in your area? This summer, projects were awarded in the following counties: Adams, Boulder, Clear Creek, Costilla, Denver, Douglas, El Paso, Huerfano, Jefferson, Kiowa, Las Animas, Rio Grande, Routt, San Juan, Teller and Weld.
