Historic Preservation Grants Available in Pennsylvania | Connect FM | Local news radio

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania – The Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission (PHMC) is now accepting applications from nonprofit organizations and local governments for the Keystone Historic Preservation Grant Program.

Grants support projects that identify, preserve, promote, and protect Pennsylvania’s historical and archaeological resources for public benefit and community revitalization. Grants are funded by the Keystone Recreation, Park & ​​Conservation Fund. A total of $2.5 million has been set aside for this program, an increase from recent years due to the program’s continued popularity.

Two categories of grants—construction and planning—are available for historic resources in Pennsylvania that are listed or eligible to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Applicants can only apply for one type of grant.

Keystone Building Grants for Historic Preservation are available for rehabilitation, preservation, and restoration activities of historic resources that are publicly accessible and owned by nonprofit or local organizations. Building grants are available between $5,000 and $100,000 and require a 50/50 cash match. Potential capital project applicants should attend a PHMC webinar on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. To register, go to https://keystone_construction_grant_webinar_2021.eventbrite.com.

Keystone Historic Preservation Project grants are available for planning and development initiatives that enhance historic preservation in communities. Project grant applications may include municipal planning initiatives focused on historic resources or may be used to achieve building or project specific planning objectives. Project grants are available between $5,000 and $25,000 and require a 50/50 cash match. Prospective applicants for project grants can opt for the program on Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. To register, go to https://keystone_planning_grant_webinar_2021.eventbrite.com.
