About the DC Community Heritage Project
The founders of DC Community Heritage Project (DCCHP) convened in January 2005 to consider an alternative to the “top-down” approach to community history that was placing interpretation of the cultural heritage of District of Columbia neighborhoods in the hands of developers and non-residents. The outcome was a plan to support residents who wanted to tell the stories of their neighborhoods and communities. And the ultimate goal was an increased commitment by all residents to preserve DC’s heritage.
DC Community Heritage Project Grants up to $2000 for each project. DCCHP is a partnership between the Humanities Council, the DC Historic Preservation Office, DC Commission on Arts & Humanities and the DC Public Library Washingtoniana Division. It is designed to provide funding and support to community leaders interested in preserving the history, architecture, and collective memory of their neighborhoods. The DCCHP is local history at a grassroots level, placing control of the narrative in the hands of those who create it.
