Survey and Planning projects involve the identification, documentation, evaluation, designation, and planning for the protection of significant historic buildings, structures, sites, and districts. Survey and planning projects involving archaeological resources are categorized under the Archaeology project type. These grant applications are most often for historic resource surveys, historic context studies, nominations, large Historic Structure Assessments, construction documents, master plans, survey plans, and historic preservation plans. Applicants can request up to $200,000 per grant cycle for survey and planning projects.

Due to the complex and varying nature of survey projects, HC-SHF recommends that applicants contact staff in advance of submitting this type of application. For more information and guidance about survey and planning projects, please refer to our Grants Application Guide.
