RMRH Program in Brief

Montana SHPO’s Revitalizing Montana’s Rural Heritage grant is for brick-and-mortar projects involving historic properties in Montana’s rural communities. Grant funds originate from the National Park Service’s (NPS) Historic Revitalization Subgrant Program (HRSP) and that agency’s Historic Preservation Fund. SHPO is among nine entities nationwide to obtain HRSP funds in the program’s inaugural year. SHPO has $450,000 to award in grants between $10,000 and $100,000. All work must meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. Properties eligible for RMRH funds are either listed in the National Register or are eligible for National Register listing. Owners of properties in receipt of an RMRH grant whose properties are not already listed in the National Register must nominate their property for listing.

RMRH Applicants and Project Information

SHPO is considering eight (8) RMRH applications for funding. Below is information on the history of each property that would benefit from RMRH-funded work. Following each paragraph are links to National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Montana Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) documents, and RMRH application materials related to the subject property.
