The Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area Corporation (YCNHAC) is the coordinating entity for the Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area (NHA). The NHA was originally designated by Congress in 2000 for a 15 year period, and was reauthorized for a 7 year period through 2022. The boundaries of the NHA are primarily in Yuma, Arizona’s historic downtown and along 7 miles of the Lower Colorado River.
Yuma is located in the southwestern corner of Arizona, where Arizona, California, and Mexico meet. The current YCNHA budget is $2.5M.
