The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area Partnership has announced its 2012 Heritage Grants Program, which will provide funding for projects that preserve, interpret, and promote Western North Carolina’s rich agricultural, craft, Cherokee, music, and natural heritage. These five legacies earned the region a Congressional designation as a National Heritage Area in 2003.
“Western North Carolina is such a special place to live and to visit,” says BRNHA Executive Director Angie Chandler. “Our grants help preserve our heritage while boosting visitor spending and other investments in our towns and communities.”
