With five historic sites, Historic Hudson Valley preserves and interprets the history of the Hudson River Valley, providing cultural enrichment for locals and drawing tourists in from neighboring regions. The National Endowment for the Humanities has supported this work since 1977, providing funding for historic sites, public programs, and summer professional development seminars that bring K–12 teachers to the region. NEH Challenge Grants helped the organization raise an additional $2.55 million in non-federal funds to endow humanities programs.
