City of Rome Selected to Receive Federal Historic Preservation Grant

April 2015 - The City of Rome will receive $9,000 for a preservation plan for the historic African-American Fairview School, located in Cave Spring, Floyd County from the FFY 2015 Historic Preservation Fund. The City of Rome was selected as one of nine Georgia communities to receive a FFY 2015 federal subgrant from the FFY 2015 Historic Preservation Fund to conduct historic preservations. Nine subgrant recipients received a total of $88,170 from the FFY 2015 Historic Preservation Fund. For the FFY 2015 grant cycle, historic resources surveys and National Register nomination projects were given priority funding by the Historic Preservation Division. These priority subgrant projects include historic resources surveys in seven Georgia communities and one National Register nomination in an African American neighborhood in Brunswick as well as the preservation plan for Fairview School. Grant projects are to be completed by September 2016. The grants are provided annually through the Historic Preservation Fund from the U.S. Department of the Interior’s National Park Service and are administered by the Historic Preservation Division (HPD) of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. Each year, Georgia’s 89 Certified Local Governments (CLGs) are eligible to apply for the matching 60% federal/40% local grants. To be eligible to become a federal Certified Local Government, a city or county must have passed a preservation ordinance and have established a historic preservation commission.
