Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, tribal entities, and local government agencies to preserve, repair, and restore historic maritime resources. Applicants must contact program staff prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended to increase public awareness of and appreciation for the nation's maritime heritage. Grants may be used to support all aspects of preservation planning and treatment for historic maritime properties, including archeological sites.

Preservation Projects consist of four major project categories:

  1. Preservation: Preservation is defined as the act or process of applying measures necessary to sustain the existing form, integrity, and materials of a historic property. Work, including preliminary measures to protect and stabilize the property, generally focuses on the ongoing maintenance and repair of historic materials and features rather than extensive replacement and new construction. New exterior additions are not within the scope of this treatment; however, the limited and sensitive upgrading of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems and other code-required work to make properties functional is appropriate for a preservation project.
  2. Reconstruction: Reconstruction is defined as the act or process of depicting, by means of new construction, the form, features, and detailing of a non-surviving site, landscape, building, structure, or object for the purpose of replicating its appearance at a specific period of time and in its historic location.
  3. Rehabilitation: Rehabilitation is defined as the act or process of making possible a compatible use for a property through repair, alterations, and additions while preserving those portions or features which convey its historical, cultural, or architectural values.
  4. Restoration: Restoration is defined as the act or process of accurately depicting the form, features, and character of a property as it appeared at a particular period of time by means of the removal of features from other periods in its history and reconstruction of missing features from the restoration period. The limited and sensitive upgrading of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems and other code-required work to make properties functional is appropriate for a restoration project.

Eligibility:

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Any State, Federally-recognized Tribal, local government, or private nonprofit organization may apply for grants to support their maritime heritage education or preservation activities.

While State or local governments or private nonprofit organizations may apply for grants to support their maritime heritage education or preservation activities, Federal agencies may not apply directly for assistance. However, projects involving federally owned maritime properties are eligible for funding.

To be eligible for a grant, at a minimum, applicants must:
- Demonstrate that the project has the potential for reaching a broad audience.
- Maintain and allow access to records that will allow for an effective accounting of project funds and any required audits, including the amount and disposition of the proceeds of the grant and the total cost of the project.

In general, the Grants Program does not fund projects which will train the maritime heritage professional to do their job better. Those education and preservation project proposals which will clearly result in professional development rather than public benefit and enlightenment are not funded. This includes activities such as developing training or continuing education courses for the maritime heritage education or preservation professional, personal research, or research resulting in highly specialized reports or publications with narrow audience appeal and little potential for public use or applications.

Pre-Application Information:

A complete application package with both a completed National Maritime Heritage Program Grant Proposal and the SF-424 with appropriate attachments must be submitted to Grants.gov by 11:59 PM on September 20, 2022.

Please contact your State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) or Tribal Historic Preservation Officer (THPO) early in the application completion process, before you submit your application package.

Applicants must match the requested grant amount on a 1-to-1 basis with non-federal assets from nonfederal sources, which include cash or in-kind services fairly valued.
