State taking applications for historic preservation grants

-A A +A

The Tennessee Historical Commission is accepting grant applications for historic preservation projects for the 2013-14 fiscal year.

About $200,000 is expected to be available for grants.

Funding decisions will be made when the exact amount of the federal allocation is known. This normally occurs by December but could be as late as August 2014.

The selection progress will emphasize projects such as architectural and archaeological surveys, design guidelines for historic districts and the rehabilitation of historic buildings that are listed in the National Register and have a public use.

The grants will pay up to 60 percent of the costs of approved project work.

The grant recipient must provide the remaining 40 percent of the costs as matching funds.

Completed applications must be submitted by Jan. 31, 2014.
