Certified Local Government Grants
One of the benefits of becoming a CLG is the opportunity to apply for grants. Each year a portion of state and federal appropriation for historic preservation is passed to Certified Local Governments in the form of matching grants. These grants fund local preservation activities in communities that have preservation ordinances. In an effort to encourage further preservation planning and build partnerships between state and local preservation organizations, the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation has created a program to award preservation planning grants to Certified Local governments on a competitive basis.
Eligible projects include, but are not limited to:
Developing design guidelines for historic districts
Municipal Historic Resource Inventory Surveys
Feasibility studies on single historic buildings or groups of historic buildings
Conditions assessments and historic structures reports
Public information projects relative to historic preservation
Education projects relative to historic preservation
Historic preservation training programs for officials and local citizens
If you have any other ideas for projects and they do not fall under the above categories, feel free to contact Ray Scriber 225-342-8162 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Certified Local Governments (CLGs) are the only eligible applicants for CLG Historic Preservation Planning Grants; however, CLGs can apply on behalf of individuals or organizations. CLG Historic Preservation Planning Grants are reimbursable, 50/50 (cash) matching grants.
Project work may only begin after the grant is awarded and a funding agreement with the Division of Historic Preservation is signed. The recipient pays for all costs up-front, and grant funds are reimbursed for 50 percent of the costs, up to the grant amount.
