Eligible properties include individual sites and buildings, historic districts, and buildings that are considered contributing elements of a historic district.

In FY 2021, the Rhode Island Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission will give special priority to reserving funding for a grant to a CLG to co-sponsor the FY 2021 Statewide Historic Preservation Conference. In awarding the remainder of CLG funds, the Commission will continue to give highest priority to projects that address important preservation needs within the applicant community or to a statewide preservation need. Special consideration will be given to those projects that address the needs of an endangered property or properties which have extraordinary significance.
Architectural studies, plans and specifications, and building reuse feasibility studies are eligible for grants. These types of projects may be particularly appropriate for endangered resources.
