Regional Heritage Stewardship Program

Our Regional Heritage Stewardship Program (RHSP) brings vital preservation services to three regions of the country:

  • The Intermountain West: Nevada, Utah, and parts of Idaho, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico
  • Appalachian regions of Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia
  • The Deep South: Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida

Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, RHSP was created in consultation with the American Association for State and Local History, which helped identify these regions as areas with limited access to conservators and preservation expertise.

Over 2017 and 2018, CCAHA conducted in-person workshops, webinars, and preservation needs assessments at institutions across Appalachia and the Deep South. In 2019, these services extended to new areas of those regions, as well as the Intermountain West.
