In 2005, Restore America: A Salute to Preservation
will focus on the revitalization of places where people live by awarding six to 12 grants for residential projects. Nonprofit organizations and public agencies are invited to apply for the grants. Approximately six to 12 grants will be awarded for projects such as rehabilitation of single-family residences or adaptive use of historic buildings for housing, creation of upper-floor apartments in Main Street communities, or restoration of Save America's Treasures sites that continue to have a residential use. Restore America: A Salute to Preservation is a partnership between the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Home & Garden Television (HGTV). Since 2003, Restore America has provided 24 grants to National Trust Save America's Treasures sites across America that highlight the work of preservation at landmark properties. HGTV has told the story of these sites through on-air and on-line content. Applications must be postmarked by November 30, 2004.
