State historic preservation grant fund applications now being accepted

The Tennessee Historical Commission has announced a new grant fund to restore National Register-listed historic properties in Tennessee. $2 million dollars in funding will be available from the Historic Property/Land Acquisition Fund (HPLAF) Grant Program this year. Applications are open now through August 31, 2024. 

The grants are competitive and can be used for Historic Restoration or Rehabilitation Projects for National Register-listed properties that have a public benefit.

“This new grant program fulfills our mission to help restore and revitalize historic places across our state by offering a much-needed funding opportunity,” said Patrick McIntyre, Tennessee State Historic Preservation Officer and Executive Director of the Tennessee Historical Commission.\

The grant program requires a 10% match of project funds from the grantee and is for properties currently listed in the National Register of Historic Places that also have a strong public engagement component such as museums, courthouses, and libraries. Applications are submitted through the TDEC Grant Management System (GMS). Visit our website for additional information and access to GMS.
