National Trust Preservation Fund Grants Available for Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawai`i, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon & Washington

The National Trust for Historic Preservation is inviting applications from nonprofit organizations with current 501(c)3 status, as well as local governments and public agencies, for its National Trust Preservation Fund/ NTPF grants. Matching grants from the NTPF are awarded annually in three competitive rounds – February 1, June 1, and October 1 - and may be used for a variety of preservation projects such as: feasibility studies or historic structures reports for endangered buildings and sites; landscape research and planning; fund-raising and media campaigns; and interpretation and heritage education activities.  Actual "bricks and mortar" construction, repair and rehabilitation work are not eligible. The grants typically range from $3,000 to $5,000 and require dollar-for-dollar match. The next round close on February 1st, 2011 (postmarked, not received).  

The applications, as well as complete guidelines and instructions, can be found at www.preservationnation.org/resources/find-funding/nonprofit-public-funding.html, but we strongly encourage you to contact the National Trust for Historic Preservation Western Office at wro@nthp.org for assistance in identifying an appropriate eligible project prior to submitting an application.   

In the February 2011 round you can also apply for the Hart Family Fund for Small Towns, Cynthia Woods Mitchell Fund for Historic Interiors, and the Johanna Favrot Fund.  The Hart Fund was established in 2004 to assist small town preservation and revitalization initiatives around the country, with a focus on towns with population of 5,000 or less. It operates within the framework of the NTPF grants – same application, same eligibility requirements, same match requirements - a one to one match. Moreover, the 2011 round of the Mitchell Fund has been replenished with additional funding, which will allow us to fund more projects than in the past few years.  In the past, funded activities have included paint analysis, the conservation of textiles, historic furnishing plans, and fundraising plans; but the Trust is always looking for more creative projects that go beyond the usual activities associated with historic interiors.  Please follow this link www.preservationnation.org/resources/find-funding/grants/Mitchell-funded.html to get an idea of some of the more innovative projects that have been funded.  So, if you know of a historic interior, including its architectural elements, finishes and furnishings, that needs to be surveyed, researched, interpreted, and/or revaluated prior to undertaking an interior restoration or historic rehabilitation, consider applying to the Mitchell Fund.
