Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $35,000 to South Carolina nonprofit organizations, local governments, and institutions for the preservation of historic resources. Funding is intended for a range of survey and planning projects, as well as the stabilization of historically significant buildings.

Survey and Planning Grants are encouraged for a variety of historic preservation projects under the following categories:

  • Identifying, Recording, and Recognizing Historic Properties
  • Planning for Historic Districts and Multiple Historic Properties
  • Strengthening Local Government Historic Preservation Programs
  • Preservation Education
  • Planning for Individual Historic Properties

Stabilization Projects:

CLG grant funds may be used to help pay for stabilization repairs to National Register-listed buildings. Examples of eligible projects include replacing a leaking roof, repairing the structural framework of a building, and repairing deteriorated doors and windows to make a building watertight. Projects that are not eligible include routine building maintenance, climate control systems, plumbing or electrical, repairs to cemetery grave markers, and routine cemetery maintenance. Interior work is not eligible unless it is structural. All work must meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. Stabilization projects require a preservation covenant agreement of up to 20 years be recorded with the property deed.

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$200,000

Estimated Size of Grant:

Grant awards usually range from $2,500 to $25,000. The maximum amount awarded is $35,000.

Term of Contract:

Applicants selected for funding should plan for their projects to begin sometime after September 1, 2020. You will be notified if an earlier start date is possible. Projects selected for funding must be completed by September 30, 2021.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Any local government, non-profit, or institution in South Carolina may apply for a Federal Historic Preservation Grant.

The SHPO’s first priority will be to fund projects in South Carolina’s CLGs. If funding is available after the required CLG minimum is met, then non-CLG projects may also be selected for funding to help support local historic preservation activities. CLG grants are awarded to the local government, or its designated third-party (which can be a non-profit organization).

South Carolina's CLGs are: Abbeville, Aiken, Anderson, Beaufort, Bennettsville, Bluffton, Blythewood, Charleston, Cheraw, Chester, Chesterfield, Clinton, Columbia, Conway, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Fort Mill, Georgetown, Greenville, Greenwood, Greer, Hartsville, Horry County, Laurens, Lexington, McClellanville, McCormick, Mount Pleasant, Rock Hill, Seneca, Spartanburg, Sullivan’s Island, Summerville, Sumter, and York.

Pre-Application Information:

Contact Brad Sauls, Grants Manager, before you apply to discuss your potential project.

Applications must be received by 5:00 PM on May 28, 2020.

Grants reimburse up to 50% of project costs.

Because these are 50/50 reimbursable matching grants, each grant applicant must demonstrate a dollar-for-dollar match and pay for the project costs up front. Matching funds must be from any non-federal source, except in the case of Community Development Block Grant funds and certain tribal funds. The SHPO will reimburse grantees after it approves the project work and receives appropriate documentation of expenditures.
