Heritage Commission to issue grants for Sandy-affected properties

Posted 6/6/13

PROVIDENCE – The R.I. and Providence Plantations Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission is slated to administer $3 million in Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Grants from the National Parks Commission.

The funds will be available to projects that “preserve and/or rehabilitate historic properties and sites impacted by Hurricane Sandy in our state,” said a release.

Privately owned properties, such as residences and commercial buildings; nonprofit-owned properties, such as historic sites; and public, though nonfederal, properties including state and municipally owned building and historic parks are eligible for grant money.

Furthermore, grants must be listed on or meet the criteria for the National Register of Historic Places.

“Last October, Hurricane Sandy and the Atlantic Ocean battered the Ocean State. These federal grants will help owners repair historic properties that were damaged and preserve Rhode Island’s heritage,” Edward F. Sanderson, executive director of the Heritage Commission, said in a statement.

Qualified owners are invited to submit a preliminary application by Aug. 1 to be considered. Both the application and a grants question-and-answers page on the Heritage Commission’s website www.preservation.ri.gov.
