The Minnesota Historical Society (MHS) has announced that more than 80 organizations in 37 counties throughout the state will receive Minnesota historical and cultural heritage grants for projects that will preserve and share the state’s rich history and cultural heritage today and for many generations to come.
The Anoka County Historical Society was awarded $24,515 for its history of the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office publication project, which will be the first comprehensive, scholarly history of the Anoka County Sheriff’s Department.
“These projects will enhance access to history for all people now and in the future,” said David Grabitske, manager of outreach services.
“Accessibility means that people will be able to use the power of Minnesota history to transform their communities.”
Minnesota historical and cultural heritage grants are made possible by the Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
The fund supports efforts to preserve Minnesota’s land, water and legacy, including state history and cultural heritage.
