Request a Grant Writer

Grant of $10,000 and grants ranging from $500 to $5,000 to USA nonprofit organizations for the preservation of New England’s railway history. Projects may involve the preservation of historically significant railroad structures, equipment, and information related to New England railroads. Applications may be submitted for the following grants:

The H. Albert Webb Memorial Railroad Preservation Award:

The purpose of the H. Albert Webb Memorial Railroad Preservation Award is to assist in the preservation of New England railroad history. Nonprofit organizations that preserve historically significant railroad equipment, structures or information from New England railroads are eligible to apply, whether or not they are based in New England.

The Award grant may fund either an entire preservation project or the completion of a specific, measurable portion of a larger preservation project.

Mr. Webb has designated the Massachusetts Bay Railroad Enthusiasts, Inc. (Mass Bay RRE) as the administrator of the H. Albert Webb Memorial Railroad Preservation Award. Each year the Mass Bay RRE Board of Directors appoints an Award Committee to conduct the selection process and make recommendations to Mr. Webb, who makes the final Award selection. Among other considerations, projects will be evaluated on the basis of their historical significance and the ability of the sponsor to fund and complete the entire preservation project, not just that portion to be funded by the Award grant.

The Mass Bay RRE Railroad Preservation Fund Grants:

Mass Bay RRE established the Mass Bay RRE Railroad Preservation Fund in 2016 to support worthy projects to preserve historically significant railroad equipment, structures, information or artifacts in New England.

Projects will be evaluated on the basis of their historical significance and the ability of the sponsor to fund and complete the entire preservation project, not just that portion to be funded by the Mass Bay RRE grant.
