Twenty-nine of the grants will help fund preservation planning projects such as condition assessments, historic structure reports, archaeological investigations, and construction documents.  The remaining four grants will help fund projects to improve visitors’ experience at historic sites by assessing heritage tourism potential and creating interpretive plans and signage.  All the grants, awarded to nonprofit organizations or entities of municipal, county and state government, require a match from the recipient. 

2018 New Jersey Historic Grants

Established in 1967, the New Jersey Historic Trust is the only nonprofit historic preservation organization in New Jersey created by state law. The Trust became a DCA affiliate in 2002 in an effort to better realign the state’s smart growth initiatives with historic revitalization. Its mission is to advance historic preservation in New Jersey for the benefit of future generations through education, stewardship and financial investment programs that save our heritage and strengthen our communities.
