The Texas Preservation Trust Fund Grant Program application process for fiscal year 2016 is a two-step process. First, all applicants are required to submit a brief application form to the THC for review. The THC will select the highest priority projects from the initial applications and invite those applicants to move forward to the second step. Successful applicants will continue the process by submitting detailed project proposals by July 15, 2016. Full project proposals will be considered by the THC for final grant awards in October 2016.

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, preservation planning, curatorial, resource survey, and heritage education projects. 

By submitting an application, you are notifying our office of educational 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.

Play a part in preserving significant historic resources and providing heritage education across Texas!
