Arkansas Heritage, a division of the Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage and Tourism, announced $24,148 in grants for six local organizations. The Arkansas Heritage Grants Program aims to help community-based and non-profit groups create programs that promote awareness and enjoyment of Arkansas’s heritage, and to make heritage-related programs possible where they would not otherwise occur.

Award recipients are:
  • City of Fairfield Bay, Fairfield Bay Historic District QRC Project, $964
  • Clinton House Museum, program development, $5,000
  • Lifelong Learning Institute of Hot Springs Village, Inc., Third Annual Arkansas Heritage Festival, $5,000

  • Stone County Historical Society, Stone County Sesquicentennial Celebration, $5,000
  • True Grit Trail, Dardanelle 2022, $3,184
In evaluating Arkansas Heritage Grant applications, the organization’s relationship to the community, its mission and sources of income, the impact of the project and the degree to which it will foster heritage tourism development are taken into consideration in addition to other criteria.
