Grants from National Trust Preservation Funds (NTPF) are intended to encourage preservation at the local level by supporting on-going preservation work and by providing seed money for preservation projects. These grants help stimulate public discussion, enable local groups to gain the technical expertise needed for preservation projects, introduce the public to preservation concepts and techniques, and encourage financial participation by the private sector.
A small grant at the right time can go a long way and is often the catalyst that inspires a community to take action on a preservation project. Grants generally start at $2,500 and range up to $5,000. The selection process is very competitive.
The review process is generally completed within ten weeks of the application deadline, and applicants are notified via email once the review process is complete.
The following guidelines are for the October 2020 round of funding and have been modified to better assist organizations during the current economic climate.
The next upcoming deadline for this program will be Thursday, October 1, 2020.
