Getty Foundation Announces Final Year of Campus Heritage Grants Program

The Getty Foundation’s (<a href=""></a>) Campus Heritage Grants program assists colleges and universities in the United States to manage and preserve the integrity of their significant historic buildings, sites, and landscapes. Please note that 2007 is the final year of the initiative.

Eligible projects include those that focus on campus-wide preservation initiatives. The purposes for which grants are available include the following: the survey of historic resources on campuses to create a comprehensive inventory and to prepare nominations for historic designation for buildings, districts, and landscapes; the creation of a preservation master plan for a campus or to augment an existing master plan with a historic preservation component; and the preparation of detailed conservation analyses and working specifications, including documentation for a group of historic buildings or landscapes, or the preparation of historic structure or landscape reports.

Projects focused primarily on single buildings or sites, basic maintenance, reconstruction or replacement of lost resources, systems upgrades, and new construction are not eligible for support.

The majority of grants will be made for planning activities. Grants for implementation may be available on a limited basis for projects where thorough planning and analysis have already taken place and a complete program of work has already been determined.

The first step in applying for a Campus Heritage Grant is to submit a preliminary Letter of Inquiry to determine eligibility. Although preliminary letters may be submitted at any time, applications have an annual deadline of April 10. Organizations interested in submitting an application should submit preliminary letters at least two months prior to the deadline.
