The National Park Service’s Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grants Program is accepting applications through Tuesday, Feb. 22, to support programs for the rehabilitation of historic properties and the economic development of rural communities.

Nonprofits and local governments are eligible to apply for grant funding provided by the Historic Preservation Fund administered by the National Park Service (NPS). Grants are awarded through a competitive process and do not require a funding match.

According to the NPS, “the goal of the Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grants Program is to fund subgrant programs that support the rehabilitation of historic properties to foster economic development of rural communities. These subgrant programs will fund preservation projects for historic sites to include architectural/engineering services and physical preservation. Grantees will create and administer their own subgrant program and select multiple projects to fund through a competitive process.”

Eligible subgrant properties must be listed in the National Register of Historic Places or have been determined eligible for listing at the national, state or local level and are located within rural communities with fewer than 50,000 residents.
