NPS American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 - Historically Black Colleges and Universities Preservation Grants

In 2009, President Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to jump-start our economy, create or save millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the 21st century. Included in this Act was $15 million to be competitively awarded to HBCUs for the preservation of campus buildings listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Applications are due by April 10, 2009.

The goal of this grant program is to make historic properties on the campuses of HBCUs safe and useable. Eligible activities include structural stabilization; masonry work; abating environmental hazards; installing or replacing heating, ventilating, and cooling systems; replacing damaged electrical and plumbing systems; repairing leaky roofs; treating termite damage; and providing handicapped accessibility. All work must be performed in accordance with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.
