Historic preservation grants available after storm

CHARLESTON — Applications are still being accepted for historic preservation disaster relief grants following Superstorm Sandy.

The West Virginia Division of Culture and History’s State Historic Preservation Office says applications must be postmarked by July 15. About $173,000 is being made available for these grants.

The funding from the National Park Service is aimed at providing technical assistance and emergency repairs to historic and archaeological resources in counties that were declared emergencies and affected by the 2012 storm. Those counties are Barbour, Boone, Braxton, Clay, Fayette, Kanawha, Lewis, Nicholas, Pendleton, Pocahontas, Preston, Raleigh, Randolph, Taylor, Tucker, Upshur, Webster and Wyoming.

Eligible projects include the restoration, rehabilitation, or archaeological development of historic sites listed in the National Register of Historic Places that were adversely affected by the storm.
