The SHF competitive grants provide funding for historic preservation projects in the areas of Acquisition & Development, Survey & Planning, Education, and Archaeology. Grant application deadlines are typically every April 1 and October 1. There are two levels of funding: mini-grants provide support of up to $35,000 and big grants are for projects requesting from $35,001 up to $200,000.
The State Historical Fund's non-competitive grants include the Historic Structure Assessment Grant, Archaeological Assessment Grant, and Emergency Grant. These grants may be submitted at any time of the year and are for smaller amounts of money than the competitive grants.
