    $3 million in grants now available to rehabilitate historic, cultural resources throughout Nevada
    Nevada is a historic and cultural wonder, with epic stories, traditions, archaeology, and iconic buildings that contribute to Nevada’s unique sense of place. Remarkably, Nevada features more than 110,000 documented cultural resources and 424 iconic buildings and archeological sites, all waiting to be discovered by current and future generations of Nevadans and all who visit the Silver State.
    As part of its mission to protect Nevada’s historic and cultural treasures, the Nevada State Historic Preservation Office (NSHPO) is excited to announce availability of $3 million in grants to help fund historic and cultural preservation projects in all parts of Nevada. Funded by the Nevada Commission for Cultural Centers and Historic Preservation (CCCHP), these grants are open to public and nonprofit agencies for projects that rehabilitate historic buildings and archaeological sites for use as cultural centers.
    Since 1993, the CCCHP has distributed over $41 million in grants to help fund more than 100 projects statewide, collectively supporting Nevada’s vibrant tourism economy. Some recent projects funded by the CCCHP grants include:

    • La Concha Lobby within the Neon Museum, Clark County;
    • Downtown Reno Library, Washoe County;
    • Stewart Indian School Auditorium, Carson City;
    • Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center, Douglas County;
    • Fallon Theatres, Churchill County;
    • El Rancho Hotel, Elko County; and
    • Goldfield High School, Esmeralda County.
    To apply for CCCHP grant funding, please call 775-684-3448, and submit a hard copy of your application by February 28, 2020. New applicants, prior grantees applying for resources that have not previously received CCCHP funding, or both must submit a Letter of Intent to the Commission by November 1, 2019.
