The grants are competitive and can be used for historic restoration or rehabilitation projects of public benefit buildings listed on the National Register.

“This new grant program fulfills our mission to help restore and revitalize historic places in our state by providing a much-needed funding opportunity,” said Patrick McIntyre, Tennessee State Historic Preservation Officer and Executive Director of the Tennessee Historical Commission.

The grant program requires a 10% contribution of the project funds from the grantee and is intended for properties currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places that also have a strong public participation component, such as museums, courthouses, and libraries. Applications are submitted through the TDEC Grant Management System (GMS). Visit our website for more information and access to GMS.
