Black Metropolis National Heritage Area Commission


The Black Metropolis National Heritage Area Commission is a private 501c3 Illinois Nonprofit Corporation with the mission of securing the National Heritage Area designation as an Act of Congress.  The Commission consist of a twenty five member steering committee that oversees educational activities, community engagement, resource development and legislative advocacy to further this mission.  A Project Action Committee worked with the Chicago Metropolitan Area for Planning (CMAP) to complete the Black Metropolis National Heritage Area Feasibility Study.  The Commission is recognized as the "working committee" in the State of Illinois resolution for the 2016 Great Migration Centennial Commemorative Commission. 


National Heritage Areas (NHAs) are designated by Congress as places where natural, cultural, and historic resources combine to form a cohesive, nationally important landscape. Through their resources,
NHAs tell nationally important stories that celebrate our nation's diverse heritage. NHAs are lived-in landscapes. Consequently, NHA entities collaborate with communities to determine how to make heritage relevant to local interests and needs.

NHAs are a grassroots, community-driven approach to heritage conservation and economic development. Through public-private partnerships, NHA entities support historic preservation, natural resource conservation, recreation, heritage tourism, and educational projects. Leveraging funds and long-term support for projects, NHA partnerships foster pride of place and an enduring stewardship ethic.

NHAs further the mission of the National Park Service (NPS) by fostering community stewardship of our nation's heritage. NHAs are not national park units. Rather, NPS partners with, provides technical assistance, and distributes matching federal funds from Congress to NHA entities. NPS does not assume ownership of land inside heritage areas or impose land use controls.
