Building Communities through Heritage
Thursday, 19 February 2004, 7 PM

Sir Neil Cossons, chairman of English Heritage, will discuss how recent work in England, undertaken as part of a wide-ranging review of protection and management of the historic environment, demonstrates that support for heritage is widespread and is seen increasingly as key to creating sustainable communities.

Architectural Conservation Grants support organizations throughout the world in their efforts to preserve buildings or sites of outstanding architectural, historical, and cultural significance. Planning Grants assist in the initial development of an overall architectural conservation plan. Support is also available on a selective basis for the development of archaeological site management plans. Implementation Grants assist in the actual conservation of a building’s historic structure and fabric.

The Getty Campus Heritage Grants assist colleges and universities in the United States to manage and preserve the integrity of their significant historic buildings, sites, and landscapes. See examples of grant recipients.
