Hurricane Relief Grant Program

Filed under: Historic Preservation — John Maass @ 2:29 am

The first round of grants in the federally funded Hurricane Relief Grant Program for Historic Preservation awarded more than $6.4 million to 57 applicants.

The grants, administered by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History, will be used to repair and restore historically significant publicly and privately owned structures that were hurricane damaged.

The largest is $1 million for the Old Hattiesburg High School. Among other significant awards was $400,000 for the Bond-Grant House (above) in Biloxi. Other amounts ranged from $9,000 to $150,000.

A list of all grants is here.
