Project Sign

When a rehabilitation project is undertaken using CLG grant funds, a sign at the project site acknowledging federal assistance must be erected when the work begins and be maintained until work is complete. The sign must be viewable from a public right of way.

The sign shall be obtained and installed by the grant recipient. The cost of the sign is an allowable grant project expense. The sign should read:

Rehabilitation of {property name}, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, has been made possible in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior's Historic Preservation Fund administered by the Ohio Historcy Connection, Historic Preservation Office.

Two color photographs of the sign in place must be submitted to the SHPO with the first progress report.
