The Board of Supervisors of the County of Santa Clara established the Historical Heritage Grant Program (HHGP) in 1990 to promote historic preservation and the awareness of significant cultural, historical, and archaeological resources within Santa Clara County. Funding is provided through the dedication of a portion of the County Park Charter Development Funds to the HHGP.

Who may apply?  Local public agencies and non-profit corporations with 501(c)(3) certification, located within the geographical limits of Santa Clara County.

How much money is available?
  $90,000 is available for Fiscal Year 2019.

What kind of projects are funded?
•    Projects must involve the stabilization, preservation, rehabilitation, restoration or interpretation of locally designated historic resources. The HHGP is limited to projects involving the development of real property, as opposed to personal property. The project must be located in a public park or on private property dedicated to park purposes. The project must involve a locally designated historic resource (landmark or contributing resource to a local historic district or the equivalent) protected by a city or County historic preservation ordinance.
Technical Workshops

Two technical workshops will be held in April to provide prospective applicants with technical information regarding the grant program and application packet filing process. Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to attend a workshop before preparing a grant application packet. Each workshop will contain the same information.
