Grants of up to $10,000 to Vermont local government agencies for the preservation of historically significant sites. Funding is intended to support the evaluation, identification, registration, planning, and preservation of properties of historical interest located in communities throughout the State.
Vermont established its Certified Local Government (CLG) program to better help local governments integrate historic preservation concerns with planning and decision-making processes. Because preservation most often happens at the local level, joining the CLG program is an important and effective way to preserve Vermont's historic places.
All grant projects must include a public information component about the purpose of the project and the value of historic preservation to the local community.
There are six broad project categories within which a CLG may apply for grant funding:
Priority I Projects:
Priority II Projects:
Funding is awarded to Priority II projects only after all eligible Priority I projects have been funded and if there is still grant money available to award.
For information about Priority I Projects, see here:
