As DHR develops the Virginia Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Historic Preservation (BIPOC) fund grant program, we welcome your feedback through our public input survey. The survey was developed to gather comments and recommendations from interested parties about what historic resources and regions of Virginia are important to them as they relate to BIPOC communities. All submissions are anonymous.
PHASE ONE — TENTATIVE TIMELINE:
Feb 1–launch–info session at Preservation Academy
Feb 15–Project Screening Form (Step 1) released
March 1–info workshop–2 hours
April 1–Project Screening Form closes
April 15–Step 2/full application released
April-May–regional workshops/technical assistance with subject matter expert breakouts (exact format TBD)–details TBD

Project properties must be listed in the Virginia Landmarks Register, the National Register of Historic Places, designated as a National Historic Landmark, or determined eligible for such listing by DHR.
Grants may be awarded for acquisitions upon which the applicant has already completed the transaction, subject to the criteria outlined in Section E of the legislation.
Grant award recommendations made by the Department will be presented to the Virginia Board of Historic Resources for approval.
