Historic Preservation Certified Local Government Grant Applications
[33 Pa.B. 5790]
On behalf of Governor Edward G. Rendell, the Historical and Museum Commission (Commission) announces that applications are now being received for 2004 Historic Preservation Certified Local Government (CLG) Grants through the Commission's Bureau for Historic Preservation.
Municipalities do not have to achieve CLG status by the time the grant application is due, but if awarded a grant, they must have achieved CLG status by the contract start date to receive grant funds.
Projects undertaken between August 1, 2004, and July 31, 2005, are eligible.
There are currently 30 CLGs in this Commonwealth. Many kinds of projects can be assisted by these grants to CLGs. Some examples are:
* Conduct systematic surveys to identify and evaluate the municipality's historic and archaeological resources.
* Prepare nominations for the National Register of Historic Places.
* Prepare and publish new or revised historic district design guidelines including signage guidelines.
* Develop the necessary documentation (maps, photographs, inventories, research and writing) to designate additional municipal historic districts or to enlarge a previously designated municipal historic district.
* Historic preservation training for CLG review board/commission members and staff.
* Develop and publish brochures or educational materials that explain municipal historic preservation responsibilities, activities, programs or local regulatory procedures.
* Develop a municipal historic preservation plan or develop a historic preservation plan as a component of a local government's comprehensive plan.
* Prepare predevelopment documents (architectural plans and specifications, engineering and feasibility studies and historic structure reports) for buildings or structures currently listed in the National Register (project must advance the CLG's historic preservation goals).
* Provide staffing/consultant services for CLG historic preservation program administration purposes.
* Develop historic preservation programs or activities that advance heritage park planning or project implementation
The deadline for applications is December 1, 2003. Approximately $80,000 will be awarded through a competitive selection process contingent on availability of Federal funds.
