Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Rhode Island local governments in eligible communities for projects related to the preservation of historically significant sites. Applicants must contact local planning offices prior to applying. Funding is intended to support a range of planning activities; surveys that evaluate and identify historic properties; preparing nominations to the National Register of Historic Places; and for public education activities, print, and digital media. Eligible properties include individual sites and buildings, historic districts, and buildings that are considered contributing elements of a historic district.

Eligible communities are Bristol, Coventry, Cranston, Cumberland, East Greenwich, East Providence, Glocester, Hopkinton, Newport, Narragansett, New Shoreham, North Kingstown, North Providence, North Smithfield, Pawtucket, Providence, South Kingstown, and Warwick. 

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.

FFY 2021 Funding Priorities

In 2021, the RIHPHC will prioritize grant proposals that respond to two of the most pressing topics in historic preservation today. These proposals will:

  • Help communities plan for protecting historic resources from the effects of climate change and sea level rise, or
  • Promote the recognition or preservation of resources associated with people of color and other historically underrepresented groups.
