The historic preservation restoration grant application period opens January 5
The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program (AHPP) will begin accepting grant applications for the 2021 Historic Preservation Restoration Grants from January 5 to March 5.
Electronic applications must be completed at this link.
Grants for the restoration of historic preservation are funded by the proceeds of the state land transfer tax and federal funds received from the National Park Service. The grants provide assistance to those seeking to preserve historic structures within the state.
Broadly speaking, there are three historic preservation restoration grant options, including grants of up to $ 10,000 for properties listed on the Arkansas Register of Historic Places or identified as a non-contributory structure in a district of the national register; grants of $ 10,000 or more for properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places or owned by a non-profit organization or municipality; and grants ranging from $ 5,000 to $ 9,999 for National Register cemeteries with proposed restoration projects.
More information on specific grant qualifications is available at www.arkansaspreservation.com under the funding / grants tab.
