Block Island Times: In what is being hailed as a “historic collaboration,” the Block Island Historical Society (BIHS) and the Southeast Lighthouse Foundation (SELF) will receive a total of $2.5 million from Deepwater Wind in what is being described in a press release as an effort to “strengthen historic preservation and heritage tourism efforts on Block Island.” The $2.5 million will be split evenly between the 2 groups.

The funds were provided under section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and were issued under a memorandum of agreement between the Army Corps of Engineers, The R.I. State Historic Preservation Office, the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and Deepwater Wind.
