The Rhode Island Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission (RIHPHC) will award historic preservation grants to preserve and/or rehabilitate historic properties and sites impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Owners of historic properties and sites impacted by Hurricane Sandy were invited to submit preliminary applications for 2013 Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Grants for Historic Properties. The preliminary applications were reviewed by RIHPHC staff and discussed at the Commission’s September meeting.
Eligible candidates were sent the final application and guidelines. Their application packages must be received at the RIHPHC office on or before Thursday, October 31, 2013 at 4:30pm. Complete applications will be reviewed by RIHPHC staff, and they will make recommendations for funding to the Commission. The final selections will be made by the Commission. Applicants will be notified of the Commission’s decisions in mid-November.
