Applications for federal historic preservation grants administered by the State Historic Preservation Office will be accepted through Dec. 3.
Grant funding is provided by the National Park Service as part of the Land and Water Conservation Fund, and is used to support preservation efforts by government agencies and non-profit organizations.
Grants may be used to support building rehabilitation, historic preservation surveys and projects that promote heritage tourism throughout the state. Previous projects funded by this program include underwater exploration and documentation of the SS Tahoe scuttled near Glenbrook, the painting of the Fourth Ward School in Virginia City, site stewardship activities across the state and the recordation and National Register evaluation of the Beverly Green neighborhood in Las Vegas.
The Preservation Office encourages first time applications from local governments and nonprofit organizations particularly in rural communities.
