Grants to Rhode Island qualifying municipal government agencies for the preservation of local historic sites. Priority will be given to proposals involving endangered historic properties, as well as properties that present historic significance. Eligible types of requests include surveys and evaluations of historic properties; preparation of nominations to the National Register of Historic Places; a variety of planning activities; and public education activities and print and digital media.

Each year the Rhode Island Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission (RIHPHC) awards matching grants to local governments whose municipal historic preservation program has been certified by the Commission.

Restoration construction projects are not eligible to apply for CLG grants. However, architectural studies, plans and specifications, and building reuse feasibility studies are eligible for grants. These types of projects may be particularly appropriate for endangered resources.

Grant awards are selected through a process of scoring and ranking applications based upon the above funding priorities, as well as criteria such as the relative architectural/historical significance of properties affected by the project activity; project impact on the community; geographic distribution of grants awarded throughout the state; follow-through on previous historic preservation work; and the CLG's ability to meet general program requirements such as compliance with applicable federal regulations, providing an adequate matching share; and presenting a scope of work which can be accomplished within the allotted time frame.


The estimated project start date is March - July 1, 2017.

Grants are made to local governments whose municipal historic preservation program has been certified by the Commission.

Communities with certification applications on file before the application deadline may submit grant proposals for Commission consideration in the event that certification is approved.

Applications must be submitted to the Commission no later than 4:00 PM, Friday, December 16, or postmarked by the deadline.

Local governments that are not currently certified may be eligible if their certification application is on file before the application deadline.

Applicants should contact their local planning office well in advance of this deadline for needed signatures.

Applicants must demonstrate an adequate financial match.
