Save America's Treasures Grant Program

Save America's Treasures Application and Instruction

The National Park Service's Historic Preservation Grants division is not closing and will continue to manage all previously awarded and existing active grants including Save America's Treasures and Preserve America grants. Grants awarded in FY 2010 and earlier will not be affected by the closure of the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Save America's Treasures office.

Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012, Public Law 112-74, providing appropriations for Fiscal Year 2012, does not include funds for Save America's Treasures grants. Therefore, NPS will not accept applications or award grants in FY 2012.

Active grants from FY 2010 and earlier will not be effected.


Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum

"...the Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum (CTHM) was awarded $345,000 from the Save America’s Treasures program in 2007 to assist in rehabilitating the historic Knights of Pythias Hall in Cuero, Texas.  Leveraging the SAT investment with funding assistance from our local economic development corporation, memberships, board member contributions, private foundations, state preservation groups and local fundraising events,  our organization was able to complete the capital expansion project in early 2010, which totaled approximately $2,571,900.

In 2009 alone, CTHM created the equivalent of 28 full-time jobs, but the long-term goals associated with this award-winning museum project is to become a key destination point that will support the continued economic development of the region through the creation of a cultural tourism cluster."
