The New Jersey Historic Trust is now accepting applications for Historic Site Management Grants from the Garden State Historic Preservation Trust Fund. Eligible properties are historic sites that are listed, or are eligible for listing, in the New Jersey or National Register of Historic Places. Guidelines and applications are now posted on the website of the NJ Historic Trust, a DCA affiliated agency, at www.njht.org.
The grants range from $5,000 to $50,000 and may be used to fund the preparation of plans and studies needed to improve site stewardship, maintenance and interpretation. The grants are available for eligible recipients such as certified nonprofit organizations and agencies of state, county or municipal government. Grant recipients are required to provide matching funds.
Applications are due on September 20, 2012.
