|Office of Cultural And Heritage affairs
MISSION The mission of Atlantic County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs is to develop countywide programs and promote public interest in
local and county history, in the arts, and in the cultural traditions
of the community. The Office, with the Cultural & Heritage Advisory
Board, makes recommendations to the County Executive and other County
Departments with regard to the restoration, operation, maintenance
and preservation of real property acquired by the County. The Office
develops cultural programs, exhibits and displays including the fine
and performing arts and the literary arts, engages in historic research,
publishes reports and engages in related activities which promote
and develop public interest and understanding of historic and cultural matters.
Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs is responsible for regranting
Local Arts Development funds of the New Jersey State Council on the
Arts/Department of State. A regrant program with the New Jersey Historical
Commission/Department of State is under development. Funding is awarded,
once a year, based on competitive applications, that are reviewed by
an independent panel convened for this purpose. Moneys are available
to arts groups, historic organizations and to local community and municipal
organizations that present public cultural programming. The Office
also assists the Atlantic County Division of Planning with reviewing
projects for regranting funds for municipal historic preservation projects
through the Atlantic County Open Space Trust and the Atlantic County
Division of Parks and Recreation with matters concerning historic sites
and structures located within the County Park system.
