Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Rhode Island local governments 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. In FY 2020, the Commission will give special priority for a grant to a CLG to co-sponsor the FY 2020 Statewide Historic Preservation Conference.

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. 

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.
