Grants of up to $25,000 to Georgia eligible government agencies to preserve significant sites throughout the state. Funding is intended for activities including but not limited to surveys, planning, reports, educational projects, and pre-development projects. The goal of the grant program is to enable cities, towns, and rural areas to undertake projects that aid in the preservation of historic properties. The applicant must be a Certified Local Government.
The Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) grants for Certified Local Governments (CLGs) support local historic preservation planning, research, and development projects. Certified Local Governments in Georgia are eligible to apply for survey, planning, education, predevelopment, and development historic preservation projects.
The grant application is for activities such as historic resources survey, National Register nominations, preservation planning, design guidelines, local designation reports, and information/education projects, historic structures reports, conditions assessment reports, structural assessment reports, preservation plans, architectural drawings, and specifications. Cemetery projects such as cemetery resource/monument surveys, ground-penetrating radar surveys, preservation plans, master plans, or conditions assessment reports are also eligible.
This grant application also supports physical “bricks and mortar” rehabilitation activities for historic site-specific buildings, structures, monuments, and places, including cemeteries and parks. Development project applications must provide the following three items to be considered eligible for HPF grant funding: a legal description of the property, listing in the National Register of Historic Places, and previous documentation of predevelopment/planning activities associated with the resource. At the completion of a development project, a preservation agreement or covenant is required for the property.
