The County Historical Commission has a Historical Grants Program which awards grant funds to historical preservation and education projects the commission deems deserving of subsidization. The projects must be within Collin County and the work of a qualified non-profit organization. See the grant program requirements.
This year the Commission awarded $28,400 in grant funding to eight local historical organizations. Since 2009, the Historical Grant Program has awarded over $186,000 to 81 historical preservation and education projects, as weil as over $10,000 in emergency grants (available outside the regular grant program cycle, for unforeseen emergency repairs and needs).
