COST-SHARE GRANTS

The Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program provides funding assistance in the form of cost-share grants, to support the preservation of the most significant and representative historic Route 66 buildings, structures, road segments, and cultural landscapes in the eight states through which the route passes. Assistance is also provided to support research, planning, oral history, and education outreach projects related to the preservation of Route 66.

Program cost-share grant funds are provided through congressional appropriations, which are determined each new fiscal year. Project eligibility criteria requires a minimum 50% (1:1) cost-share match provided by the applicant. All preservation, restoration, and rehabilitation projects are required to conform to the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.

The 2014 cost-share grant cycle is now closed. The deadline for application submissions was Friday March 28, 2014. The 2015 cycle will open in January 2015, at which time an application package will be available through this web site and the program office. The 2015 eligibility and evaluation criteria will be similiar to those set forth in the 2014 Cost-Share Grant Application Guidelines and Forms (Word) (pdf). The eligibility and evaluation criteria set forth in these guidelines were established for the 2014 funding cycle only, and are subject to revision in the future based on congressional appropriations and continued development of long-term programmatic strategies and goals.
