HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) is now accepting applications for federal Historic Preservation Certified Local Government (CLG) Grants.
This reimbursement grant program requires a 50/50 match. Approximately $104,350 will be awarded through a competitive selection process contingent on availability of federal funds.
Grants are available to support projects in the following categories: cultural resource surveys; National Register nominations; historic preservation planning; staffing and training; pooling CLG grants; and third-party administration.
The deadline for CLG grant applications is Jan. 13, 2012. Projects undertaken between Aug. 1, 2012, and July 31, 2013, are eligible.
There are currently 44 Certified Local Governments in Pennsylvania.
Municipalities do not have to achieve CLG status by the time the grant application is due, but if awarded a grant, they must have achieved CLG status by the contract start date in order to receive funding. For information on eligibility for the National Park Service’s Certified Local Government Program administered by PHMC, contact Andrea MacDonald by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 717-787-4215.
Grant applicants are required to use the web-based electronic grant application process (eGrant). For program guidelines and application instructions, visit PHMC online at www.phmc.state.pa.us and click on “Grants and Funding.”
PHMC is the official history agency of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
