Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs
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.
The 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.
