Historic Preservation Restoration Grants are financed through proceeds of the state Real Estate Transfer Tax and/or federal funds received from the National Park Service, Department of the Interior, and provide assistance to those seeking to preserve historic structures within our state.

Generally speaking, there are three Historic Preservation Restoration Grant options including grants of up to $10,000 for properties on the Arkansas Register of Historic Place and/or identified as a non-contributing structure in a National Register District; grants of $10,000 or more for properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places and/or owned by a non-profit or municipality; and, grants of between $5,000 to $9,999 for National Register listed cemeteries with proposed restoration projects. More information about specific grant qualifications is available at under the funding/grants tab.
