The National Park Service is accepting applications to the Route 66 Cost-Share Grant Program.
The program provides cost-share grant assistance 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 (Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California). Assistance is also provided to support research, planning, oral history, and educational 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.
