MA Historical Comm. Survey and Grants

The Massachusetts Historical Commission (MHC) Fiscal Year 2015 Survey and Planning Grant cycle is underway.   For the FY 2015 round, eligible applicants will include all local historical commissions, local historic district commissions, municipal planning offices, and other public and non-profit historic preservation organizations.  For FY 2015, the MHC/Grantee match shares will be 50/50. The goal of the Survey and Planning Grant program is to support efforts to identify and plan for the protection of the significant historic buildings, structures, archaeological sites and landscapes of the Commonwealth. Potential projects include the completion of cultural resource inventories, nomination of significant properties to the National Register of Historic Places, completion of community-wide preservation plans, and other types of studies, reports, publications and projects that relate to the identification and protection of significant historic properties and sites.
