CLG grants provide funding to participating city and county governments to develop and sustain an effective local preservation program critical to preserving local historic resources. Activities eligible for CLG grant funding must be tied to the statewide comprehensive preservation planning process. A copy of the Texas Historical Commission Statewide Preservation Plan can be found here.
Priority for funding shall be given to those projects that directly relate to the following work categories:
- Architectural, historical, archeological surveys/inventories
- Preparation of nominations to the National Register of Historic Places
- Preparation of a local preservation plan
- Writing or amending preservation ordinance
- Development of local design guidelines
- Research and development of local preservation incentive program
- Travel/training expenses for hosting a regional preservation-related workshop
All CLG grants require a local match budgeted on a one-to-one (dollar for dollar) match equal to a 50-50 ratio for the total cost of the project. Proposed projects utilizing all or partial matches of verifiable in-kind services or goods may also qualify as long as the local match equals a 50-50 ratio for the total cost of the project. Only non-federal monies may be used as a match, with the exception of Community Development Block Grants.
