The Connecticut State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) requested several of us to help them get the word out about the forthcoming availability of grant money for repairing historic structures damaged by Hurricane Sandy. A total of about $8 million dollars in grant monies will be made available to owners of National Register -listed or -eligible properties, for either emergency repairs or technical assistance. Individual awards will range from $2,500 to $500,000.
Below is the official flyer released by the Connecticut SHPO. Public information hearings will be held in Milford and New Haven, with specific dates announced in September. Please email or phone the SHPO using the contact information at the bottom of the flyer for more information.
More detailed information, including scheduled public sessions, grant applications, and guidelines, etc., has been posted on this Connecticut Offices of Culture and Tourism page.
