The Community Heritage Preservation Grant program provides funds to help preserve, restore, rehabilitate, and interpret historic courthouses and schools. In Certified Local Government communities grant funds may also be used for projects involving historic buildings other than courthouses or schools. All buildings must have been designated Mississippi Landmarks prior to application to be eligible for the grants.
