Alabama Historical Commission announces 2015 grants program

By Gary Lloyd

MONTGOMERY — The Alabama Historical Commission is accepting grant applications for capital enhancements to non-state owned or operated historical properties and sites.

Grants will be awarded for the coming fiscal year 2015.

Local historical sites and parks operated by nonprofit or tax exempt organizations, county or municipal governments are eligible. The grants will be awarded so that grant recipients reflect the geographical diversity of the state.

The historic school building in the Cahaba Project was mentioned as a possibility for the grant by Trussville resident Bob Davis at a recent Trussville City Board of Education work session.

Only applicants that didn’t receive historical grants in fiscal year 2013 are eligible. Religious institutions/organizations aren’t eligible.

Applications must be postmarked or emailed by Aug. 15. Hand-delivered applications must arrive by 5 p.m. the same day.

The historical commission will award grants in amounts not to exceed $10,000 for any one historical site or park.

Nonprofit groups and government entities interested in applying for a grant should review the application and contact John Powell at or 334-230-2654.

Guidelines and an application are available at

The grants are made possible by Act 2014-284 passed by the Alabama Legislature in April 2014.
