FY23 Federal Historic Preservation Fund Grant Applications Due April 27

Applications and instructions for the FY 2023 federal Historic Preservation Fund subgrants are now available at https://scdah.sc.gov/historic-preservation/programs/grants. Administered by the SHPO, these matching grants can assist two types of projects:

  • Survey and Planning Projects—eligible projects include surveys of historic properties, National Register nominations, preservation education, and preservation planning.
  • Stabilization Projects—eligible projects include stabilizing historic buildings or protecting historic buildings from the adverse effects of the weather. Stabilization Projects are limited to projects located in South Carolina’s Certified Local Government (CLG) communities.

Any local government, non-profit, or institution in South Carolina may apply for a Survey and Planning Project. Local governments, non-profits and institutions located in a CLG community may also apply for a Stabilization Project. At least 10 percent of the state’s annual allocation from the National Park Service must be awarded to CLGs. Grant awards generally range from $2,500 to $35,000. Applications will be accepted until 5:00 PM, on Thursday, April 27, 2023. Please contact Brad Sauls at 803-896-6172, or bsauls@scdah.sc.gov to discuss your project before you apply.
