In 2014, MDAH will award 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 2015 round of CLG grants will be available in the fall of 2014. The Notice of Intent deadline is Friday, October 31, 2014. 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 complete grant application is due Friday, February 27, 2015. For more information, contact CLG Grant Administrator Barry White at 601-576-6953 or bwhite@mdah.state.ms.us.
