The National Trust for Historic Preservation announced a round of funding – open through May 1, 2019 – for grants for small towns through the Hart Family Fund for Small Towns.  Learn more and apply here. 

Grants from the Hart Family Fund for Small Towns are intended to encourage preservation at the local level by providing seed money for preservation projects in small towns. These grants help stimulate public discussion, enable local groups to gain the technical expertise needed for particular projects, introduce the public to preservation concepts and techniques, and encourage financial participation by the private sector.

Grants from the Hart Family Fund for Small Towns generally range from $2,500 to $15,000. The selection process is very competitive. The review process is generally completed within three months of the application deadline, and applicants are notified via email once the review process is complete. Projects in many Connecticut towns are eligible to apply!
