NEW GRANTS MEAN BETTER PROJECTS!
Road Show Gets Three-Year Boost
Fantastic news came from Montana Senator Jon Tester's office on August 2, that MPA was offered a 3-year, $60,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support our Path Less Traveled: Montana Preservation Road Show!! This is a wonderful boost to our efforts to highlight best practices in heritage stewardship efforts happening in rural Montana and bring attention and assistance to those places in need of help. Many thanks to all our partners in this endeavor for your letters of support, assistance, advice, humor and patience. We look forward to working with you on this preservation road trip for many years to come!
And stay tuned for more information on our next Road Show, June 13-16, 2018 in the Flathead/Glacier region!
Two Cheers For Revolving Fund Plan!
With a grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and another from the MT Dept. of Commerce Big Sky Trust Fund, the MT Business Assistance Connection (MBAC) will assist MPA in creating a feasibility and implementation plan for our historic building redevelopment (revolving fund) program! With this plan in place, MPA will increase our capacity to rescue and rehab historic buildings. With the Broadway Building rescue under our belts, MPA is ready to set in stone our plans for rescuing historic buildings and putting them back into productive use.
