NATIONAL TRUST LENDS SUPPORT TO THE NEW HAMPSHIRE DIVISION OF HISTORICAL RESOURCES

The New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources, today was awarded a $5,000 grant by the National Trust for Historic Preservation from its Johanna Favrot Fund for Historic Preservation.  The seed grant funds will be used to develop a manual for establishing Neighborhood Heritage Districts in New Hampshire.

In announcing the grant, National Trust President Richard Moe said, “With these start-up dollars, the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources, joins the hundreds of other communities and organizations across the country actively ensuring that America’s architectural and cultural heritage is preserved.”

The Johanna Favrot Fund for Historic Preservation was created in 1994 by a generous grant from the Favrot family in honor of the 80th birthday of Texas preservationist Johanna Favrot.  The Johanna Favrot Fund fosters appreciation of America’s diverse cultural heritage, and preserves and revitalizes the livability of the nation’s communities by saving historic environments.  The National Trust for Historic Preservation distributes total grants of $50,000 annually from the Johanna Favrot Fund for Historic Preservation. Once a year, Favrot Fund grants ranging from $2,500 to $10,000 are awarded to nonprofit groups and public agencies. Grants must be matched at least dollar-for-dollar with public or private funds.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation is a nonprofit membership organization chartered by Congress to encourage public participation in all aspects of historic preservation.
