President Bush Requests $12.5 Million in Preserve America Grants
The Bush Administration's fiscal year 2006 budget includes a request for $12.5 million in grants for which Preserve America Communities, Certified Local Governments, and others will be eligible to apply.
grants of $10,000 to $100,000 would be distributed on a competitive basis to projects
that preserve and use important historic resources for promotion of heritage tourism
and other economic revitalization projects.
The proposed Preserve America grants would provide upfront planning and assistance to communities looking for ways to preserve their local heritage in self-sustaining ways.
If Congress enacts the President's grant request, the Preserve America grant program will begin this fall.
