Certified Local Government Program
Durant Depot Window Restoration – Before and After
In 2015, MDAH awarded close to $75,000 to preservation projects in fifteen different Certified Local Government Communities. The Certified Local Government Program is a federal-state-local partnership that promotes historic preservation at the grassroots level and helps communities deal with preservation needs.
CLG communities are eligible for annual matching grants to undertake preservation projects of importance to the community. Grants may be used for such diverse projects as the restoration of historic buildings; historical, architectural, or archaeological site inventory work; preparation of nominations to the National Register of Historic Places; educational programs; and staff support for new historic preservation commissions.
The application for the 2016 round of CLG grants is now available. The Notice of Intent deadline is Friday, November 6, 2015. The NOI is required and allows CLG Communities to submit potential project ideas to MDAH staff for comment on the viability of the proposal. The NOI form and CLG application, along with instructions for submitting both, are included in the CLG Grant Manual linked below.
The complete grant application is due Friday, February 26, 2016. For more information, contact CLG Grant Administrator Barry White at 601-576-6953 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
