Grants of up to $1,000 and, in exceptional cases, grants of up to $4,000 to Delaware nonprofits, for-profits, individuals, business partnerships, and government agencies for the preservation of historically significant properties. Proposals will be evaluated based on their ability to make a big difference for the small investment offered.
The following criteria are applied in the assessment of applications. Considerations are not limited to these criteria, and not all criteria need to be met. The Board will weigh up the various factors applying to each individual case and all decisions are at its absolute discretion:
-Availability of funds
-The relative historic significance of the property
-The degree to which the resource is otherwise threatened with loss, compromise or significant deterioration
-The geographical distribution of applications across the State
-The extent of benefit to the surrounding neighborhood
The Fund strives to disperse grant money evenly throughout the State of Delaware. An application of otherwise lesser merit may be given preference if it comes from a location that is under-represented in applications for that particular year.
GrantWatch ID#: 167282
The Fund may award one or two grants each year for up to $4,000 for exceptional cases.
Most grants awarded will be for a maximum of $1,000.
In exceptional cases amounts up to $4,000 have been granted. In these exceptional cases, the Board must be satisfied the item is of major significance, the item will be in danger if the work is not carried out, the likely benefits well exceed the anticipated costs, and/or the work is unlikely to take place without the Fund’s assistance.
Grants are for a twelve-month period but may be extended for a further twelve months, if good cause is shown. A grant will automatically lapse if not extended, and an extended grant will automatically lapse after two years. No further extension is possible.
A grant can be awarded even if the work has already been done, at the time the application comes up for consideration. So long as the work is done within the preceding twelve months, reimbursement can be made if documentation is in order.
