MDAH is accepting applications for preservation projects across the state. The 2019 Mississippi legislature has provided funding for another round of the Community Heritage Preservation Grant (CHPG) Program, which helps 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.

"This program has saved more than 250 buildings throughout the state, from ones with national significance to those that are local treasures," said CHPG program coordinator Roger Walker. “Once again, we are thankful to the Legislature for the opportunity to continue assisting communities to preserve their historic buildings.”
