Certified Local Government Grant application materials for the 2012 funding cycle are available.
CLG Grants will be awarded on a 60:40 basis; that is, up to 60% of the total project cost can be paid by the CLG grant, 40% funded with local match. Local match can be any combination of cash, in-kind or volunteer time, or donated materials. CDBG funds are an allowable match. The project period will be May 1, 2012 - September 30, 2013.
There is $110,579 available for CLG grants in 2012. Approximately $57,000 was obligated to five projects during the first round of project applications. This has necessitated a second funding round.
The application deadline for the second round is June 15, 2012. OHPO staff are available to discuss proposed projects, answer questions, and/or review draft applications.
For registration projects: If seeking CLG funds to designate properties to the National Register of Historic Places, the CLG Registration Questionnaire must be completed and submitted to the Ohio Historic Preservation Office by May 25, 2012, three weeks prior to the CLG grant application deadline of June 15, 2012.
For development or acquisition projects: All applications for development or acquisition projects must include a signed Acquisition or Development Certification Form. This form certifies that the project for which CLG funds are being sought has not previously claimed the Federal Rehabilitation Investment Tax Credit. It also serves as an acknowledgement that a preservation agreement or covenant, as applicable, will be executed prior to release of the grant payment.
