Grants for historic preservation planning available in six NH counties

The N.H. Division of Historical Resources has announced a new grant program to assist historic preservation disaster planning needs in six New Hampshire counties.

Pre-Disaster Planning Grants for Historic Properties will fund projects that lay the groundwork for recovery in the event of a disaster, as well as for other preservation planning initiatives. A range of projects are eligible for funding, including: new or updated historical surveys, National Register nominations, community- and property-specific disaster plans, archaeological site stabilization, and others.

Funds have been made available under the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013. Historic properties in six of New Hampshire’s ten counties – Belknap, Carroll, Coös, Grafton, Rockingham and Sullivan – are eligible for this funding. No matching funds are required, however, they are encouraged.

Applications for this grant program are available at the NHDHR’s website, nh.gov/nhdhr, and are due August 10, 2015. For more information, contact Amy Dixon, 603-271-3558, amy.dixon@dcr.nh.gov.

New Hampshire’s Division of Historical Resources, the “State Historic Preservation Office,” was established in 1974. The historical, archaeological, architectural and cultural resources of New Hampshire are among its most important environmental assets. Historic preservation promotes the use, understanding and conservation of such resources for the education, inspiration, pleasure and enrichment of New Hampshire’s citizens. For more information about the NHDHR, visit nh.gov/nhdhr or call 603-271-3483.
