Special Notice: $10,000 in FFY 2012 CLG Grant Funds Available
The Ohio Historic Preservation Office recently learned that one of the CLGs that received an FFY2012 grant award will be unable to be use it. In order to reallocate this $10,000 award we are soliciting proposals for projects that can be completed by September 30, 2013. In addition to new proposals, the CLGs that received FFY2012 grant awards can submit applications to expand the scope and/or budget of their in-process projects.
All applications for these funds are due in our office by 5:00, Monday, February 25, 2013. Submission should be made using the FFY2013 application form. CLG grant application materials and instructions are available below. All CLG grant eligibility requirements apply. As these funds are from the 2012 federal allocation and therefore cannot be used for any activity occurring after September 30, 2013, applications must clearly document that all work can be completed by that date. For questions or additional information please contact OHPO Grants Manager Kathy Fortener at 614-298-2000 or by email at email@example.com.
Certified Local Government Grant application materials for the 2013 funding cycle are available.
CLG Grants will be awarded on a 60:40 basis; that is, up to 60% of the total project costs can be paid by the CLG grant, 40% funded with local match. Local Match can be any combination of cash, in-kind or volunteer time, or donated materials. CDBG funds are an allowable match. The project period will be April 1, 2013 – September 30, 2014.
We are forecasting that approximately $100,000 will be available for CLG grants in 2013. The application deadline is February 1, 2013. OHPO staff are available to discuss proposed projects, answer questions, and/or review draft applications.
