In 2011, MDAH awarded close to $74,000 to preservation projects in fourteen 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 2013 round of CLG grants is now available. The Notice of Intent deadline is Friday, November 9. 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, March 1, 2013. For more information contact CLG Grant Administrator Vicki Myers at 601-576-6953 or vmyers@mdah.state.ms.us.
