The Texas Preservation Trust Fund Grant Program is your opportunity to save and protect Texas' threatened historic structures and significant archeological sites. Grant awards may be used for restoration work, architectural planning, archeological investigation, archeology curatorial, preservation planning, resource survey, and heritage education training.
By submitting an application, you are notifying our office of heritage education needs in your community and advising us of endangered historic properties and archeological sites that may soon be lost if this valuable assistance is not provided. We encourage you to submit an application so we may continue to demonstrate the need for our efforts.
Please note that the current grant cycle is dedicated for disaster relief for properties damaged by Hurricane Harvey. The TPTF webpage will be updated as grant cycles are announced.
