Nonprofits, businesses, local governments, and individuals can now apply for grants up to $100,000 to preserve historic buildings in Maryland.

This year, the Maryland Historical Trust Capital Grant Program has $600,000 available for the preservation of historic buildings. 

The grant can be used to acquire, restore, or rehabilitate buildings that are listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.  

Maryland’s national register currently has over 1500 listings, including around 200 historical districts.

In Baltimore City, there are 68 historic districts, ranging from neighborhoods in Federal Hill to Canton. 

In order to receive capital grant funding, the building must be significant to Maryland’s history. 

The application period closes on March 15 at 11:59 p.m.
