Elaine Evans / Thursday, January 27, 2022 / Categories: General News Capital Support for Historic Churches National Fund for Sacred Places The National Fund for Sacred Places, a program of Partners for Sacred Places in collaboration with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, provides support to community-serving congregations to aid in the stewardship of their historic facilities. The first and only program of its kind, the Fund offers the following types of support: 1) grants for the planning and execution of urgent capital projects at historic churches that are valued for their cultural importance as well as their role in providing human services, strengthening communities, and revitalizing neighborhoods; and 2) training, capacity-building, and technical assistance to ensure that grant-funded projects are successfully planned and implemented. Projects must be able to raise matching funds at a 1:1 rate for grants of $50,000 to $100,000; grants from $100,001 to $250,000 require matching funds of 2:1. Letters of intent must be submitted by March 7, 2022; full applications will be due July 18, 2022. Detailed application guidelines are available on the Fund's website. www.fundforsacredplaces.org.
