These grants may be submitted at any time of the year and are for smaller amounts of money than the competitive grants. They include the Historic Structure Assessment Grant, Archaeological Assessment Grant, and Emergency Grant.
There are three essential elements to applying for a competitive State Historical Fund Grant:
You need to be or work with an eligible grant applicant.
If you are planning to do physical work on a structure, building, site, or object, the resource must be historically designated. If this is a survey and planning, archaeological survey, or education project, the focus of your project must be directly related to historic preservation.
You need to apply for projects, activities, and costs that qualify for assistance from the State Historical Fund.
