Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Historic Preservation Division
Grants of up to $20,000 to Georgia government agencies to preserve significant sites in communities throughout the State. Funding is intended to support activities such as surveys, planning, educational projects, publications, workshops, pre-development projects, and repairs. All grant projects must be either conducted or supervised by personnel who meet recognized professional qualifications.
The HPF grant program is structured to support local preservation efforts and to strengthen the Certified Local Government (CLG) program statewide. CLGs may apply for three categories of projects: pre-development, development, and survey and planning.
Predevelopment grant applications are for site-specific predevelopment planning activities, such as 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.
The development grant application is for physical “bricks and mortar” rehabilitation activities for historic site-specific buildings, structures, monuments, and places, including cemeteries and parks. Site-specific development grant projects for rehabilitation projects could include roof, plaster, or window repair or structural/foundation stabilization for buildings, structures, or monuments.
The survey and planning grant application is for activities such as historic resources survey, National Register nominations, preservation planning (design guidelines, local designation reports, etc.), and information/education projects (brochures, DVDs, website development, heritage education/heritage tourism materials, workshops/conferences, etc. More information regarding eligible projects can be found on pages 4-6 of the Survey and Planning Grant Package (in Supporting Documents below).
Grant applications are rated according to objective selection criteria, and in relation to the quality of all the other applications received. The selection criteria emphasize the need for the project, sound project and financial administration, and proper preservation methodology. Also, geographical distribution and the selection of a variety of project types are factors in the award of grant funds.
Eligible activities include the following:
