The Heritage Trust Fund (HTF) is a state program that provides matching funds for the preservation of properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places or the Register of Historic Kansas Places.  The HTF reimburses expenses for projects that preserve or restore historic properties. Qualifying expenses include professional fees and construction costs. Properties owned by the state or federal governments are not eligible, but those owned by local governments, private individuals, non-profit, and for-profit entities qualify. Individual grant awards may not exceed $90,000 and must be matched by the grant recipient. Yearly grant rounds are highly competitive.

An informational HTF grant workshop will be held on Wednesday, July 14, 2021 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. to provide applicants with step-by-step instruction on filling out the HTF grant application. This free workshop includes information on the HTF grant application process and grant administration procedures. Workshop attendance is not mandatory to apply for the 2022 round of the HTF grant, but it is highly recommended. Advance registration is not required.

See the HTF Workshops page for more information.  Other preservation-related workshops are often available too.

Remember to submit the signed Assurances form at the end of the application. The Assurances form and 2022 HTF Program Information can be found at kshs.org/14617.
