As the Department of Historic Resources develops the Virginia Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Historic Preservation Fund grant program, we welcome your participation through our Public Input Survey. The purpose of the survey is 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.
The survey is also available through DHR's website: https://www.dhr.virginia.gov/grants/virginia-black-indigeneous-and-people-of-color-historic-preservation-grant-program/ Please share this survey link widely! We are interested in feedback from BIPOC communities across Virginia about project priorities, geographic areas of interest, how applications may be evaluated and/or selected, and barriers they see to participating in the grant program or meeting program requirements. If you know of any individuals or groups that would like to share their comments separately or in lieu of the survey, please have them reach out to: Caitlin Sylvester, Grant Coordinator Virginia Department of Historic Resources 2801 Kensington Avenue Richmond, Virginia 23221 804-482-6461 BIPOCGrantFund@dhr.virginia.gov
