Where will your money go?
Since 1994, HPD's Georgia Heritage Grant Program has granted more than $3 million in matching funds to 247 projects.

While the goal for the Georgia Heritage Grant Program is $5 million/year, funding peaked in SFY 2002 at $500,000.

Due to budget constraints, the Georgia Heritage Grant Program has not been funded by the Georgia General Assembly since SFY2008. 

License plate revenues have funded 9 projects totaling $116,685.
