HARRISBURG, Pa., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) is now accepting applications for federal Historic Preservation Certified Local Government (CLG) Grants.

This reimbursement grant program requires a 50/50 match. About $118,000 will be awarded through a competitive selection process contingent on availability of federal funds.

Grants are available to support projects in the following categories:

  • Planning
  • Design guidelines or design assistance
  • National Register nominations
  • Cultural resource surveys
  • Public education
  • Training
  • Revitalization and reuse studies
  • Program administration

The deadline for CLG grant applications is Feb. 1, 2013. Projects undertaken between Aug. 1, 2013, and July 31, 2014, are eligible.

Municipalities do not have to achieve CLG status by the time the grant application is due, but if awarded a grant, they must have achieved CLG status by the contract start date in order to receive funding.

There are currently 44 Certified Local Governments in Pennsylvania. For information on eligibility for the National Park Service's Certified Local Government Program administered by PHMC, contact Andrea MacDonald by e-mail at or by phone at 717-787-4215.
