Grants to Florida nonprofit organizations, businesses, and commercial property owners in eligible regions for conservation, tourism, and economic development. Funding is intended for projects that take place in non-residential buildings. Projects may involve rehabilitation or restoration of historic structures, compatible additions to historic structures, improvements to historic sites or grounds, and architectural heritage tourism projects. The project must be located in Hillsborough County.
The Hillsborough County Historic Preservation Challenge Grant Program was created to promote historic preservation, heritage tourism, and related business and economic development within both incorporated and unincorporated Hillsborough County.
With limited funding, grant funding recommendations largely favor those project activities that correct conditions that threaten the structural and/or economic viability of a designated or contributing historic property, such as sealing the envelope of the building (roof, window, masonry projects); and addressing adaptive reuse. Projects enhancing public access to a designated or contributing historic property, involving Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) components, may receive priority consideration.
Projects eligible for funding must fall within one or more of the following four Project Types:
GrantWatch ID#: 156784

The project must be completed within a 12-month time period, unless otherwise specified.
The Grantee must enter into an agreement with the County for the use of grant funds within six (6) months of being awarded the grant by the Board of County Commissioners.
