Route 66 program is accepting grant applications

The Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program announced Thursday it has opened its 2014 season for accepting applications for cost-share grants.

The deadline to submit an application is March 28. It requires a minimum investment of 50 percent of the cost.

Nearly $1.8 million in grants have been awarded since 2001. Forms and more about the program’s guidelines can be found here.

If you’re a Route 66 business owner who needs a new roof, climate-control system, or some other essential work, I encourage you to apply. If you need technical help filling the application, you can contact the program’s office or your local historical preservation agency.
