HEC has made proceeds from our 2018 Show House available to support projects in the community. HEC has partnered with Preservation Maryland to create and fund the Historic Ellicott City Revitalization Grant Program. Last year, the Program provided $50,000 in funding for seven important projects. The updated deadline for grant applications is January 31, 2019.
The program was renewed for another year and will provide direct assistance for the rehabilitation and preservation and promotion of cultural resources within the Ellicott City National Register Historic District and the surrounding area in Howard County. Eligible entities include non-profits, religious institutions, local businesses, and municipal agencies.Projects that may be eligible fall into two broad categories, repair and interpretation, that together will comprehensively addresses the needs of applicants. Examples of eligible projects include:
• Bricks-and-mortar-type projects for the physical rehabilitation and preservation of historic properties and materials, like repairing historic windows and roofs, masonry work, painting
• Projects that identify, analyze or otherwise benefit or interpret archaeological resources
• Projects that enhance public awareness and understanding of historic Howard County, like improved wayfinding signage, educational materials, or exhibits
