Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Thursday, August 02, 2018

The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, a division of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, has awarded $114,528 in grants for three projects through its Historic Preservation Restoration Grant program.

These grants are in addition to $874,795 in Historic Preservation Restoration Grants (HPRG), which distribute funds raised through the Real Estate Transfer Tax to rehabilitate buildings listed on the Arkansas or National Registers of Historic Places and owned by local governments or not-for-profit organizations, that were awarded earlier this year.

Grant recipients were:

* Clarendon First United Methodist Church, $29,428 for roof restoration at the 1912 Clarendon Methodist Episcopal Church, South

* Fayetteville Evergreen Cemetery Association, $35,100 to restore sections of a 1915 stone retaining wall

* First Lutheran Church in Little Rock, $50,000 for masonry repointing and slate roof restoration at the 1888 structure.
