Preservation Group To Take Grant Applications

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Historical Commission will start taking grant applications for historic preservation projects for next year starting Friday.

Officials said the amount of funds available for grants in Tennessee is expected to be about $200,000.

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 on 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.

Applications must be submitted by Jan. 31.
