Competitive Applications

Letter of Intent

To receive a competitive application, you must submit a Letter of Intent. We accept Letters of Intent on a rolling basis but must receive them no later than one month prior to your target grant round deadline. To submit a Letter of Intent, send your answers to the following questions (one to two paragraphs each) to or complete this Google Form.

  • Who is the grant applicant? Who will be on your team, managing the grant and doing the work?
  • What historic place, building, landscape, site, or other preservation/archaeology information is the focus of your project?
  • What are you planning to do?
  • Why is this project urgent now and when do you want to start?
  • How is your community engaged in the project? How does this project benefit them?

Our staff will review the information within one business week and let you know if your project receives a green, yellow, or red light.

  • Green projects can proceed as outlined in the Letter of Intent.
  • Yellow projects must collaborate with our staff to refine the scope of work and ascertain the best target grant deadline.
  • Red projects do not align with our grant program’s requirements.
