Note: We do not offer grants to individuals, but you can learn about financial assistance for historic preservation here.
For a list of many funding sources for communities and historic preservation, see the Prospering Places Toolkit "Funding and Support" page.
Certified Local Government (CLG) Grants - A city, town, or county government can qualify to participate in the federal Historic Preservation program by becoming a Certified Local Government. CLGs are then eligible to receive federal funds as grants passed through State History. These grants may be used for projects related to historic preservation, including surveys of historic buildings or sites and "brick-and-mortar" activities.
Utah Cemetery Inventory Grants - Local cemeteries may apply for grant funds to convert sexton records to electronic databases and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Cemeteries send the data they gather to the State History for inclusion in our Utah Cemeteries and Burials database.
Oral History Grants - The Utah Humanities Council and the Utah Division of State History have joined together to offer grants for oral history research and transcription projects.
Capital Grant Request Prioritization - Communities and community-based cultural organizations can request state financial assistance for capital projects.
