2023 Shelby White & Leon Levy Archival Assistance Initiative Grant Awardees

November 30, 2023

By Emily R. Kahn, Executive Director

From the 2023 Newsletter

The New York Preservation Archive Project originally presented Archival Assistance Initiative grants in 2013, 2015, and 2017 to assist historic preservation-related not-for-profit organizations across New York City in identifying and maintaining their archival resources. The generous assistance of the Leon Levy Foundation revitalized the program in 2022 and provided additional funding for future rounds of small grants. 

This year, we had a robust applicant pool and equally robust deliberations. Please join us in congratulating the following awardees of the highly competitive 2023 Shelby White & Leon Levy Archival Assistance Initiative Grant:

Friends of the Alice Austen House

Historic Districts Council 

Historic Richmond Town 

Jefferson Market Library 

Jill Gill Archive 

Lower East Side Preservation Initiative 

Tenement Museum 

Village Preservation 

Congratulations to all of this year’s grantees! Grant funding from this cycle will support projects that improve archival stewardship of and public access to materials related to historic preservation in New York City. Details on the next round of funding will be announced in 2024.
