Pilot Grant Program for Historic School Buildings Available

Do you know of a historic school in need of preservation funding? The National Trust for Historic Preservation, in partnership with the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation, is currently seeking applications for a new pilot grant program that will fund the stabilization or rehabilitation of historic school buildings by providing funding for construction expenses.

Full grant guidelines and application information is available at

In 2010, a new pilot program will focus on historic school buildings that are being stabilized or restored, and that upon completion will be open to the public and serve the community. Grants are intended to further the restoration or rehabilitation of these buildings by providing funding for construction expenses. The maximum grant amount will be $50,000.

Grant applications must be postmarked by April 30, 2010.
