Dear Friends of Route 66,

It has been a challenging past year for many of our Route 66 people, places, businesses, and communities, and I hope that we are now turning the corner toward better times. With this and the 100th anniversary of Route 66 just five short years away, the National Park Service, Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program is very pleased to announce that it is offering a cost-share grant season in 2021. These grants can assist with preservation planning, National Register nominations, preservation, and rehabilitation work on eligible historic sites, as well as research and educational outreach initiatives.

The open season will last from February 23 through April 26, 2021. Full details are available here:

Photos from our October 2019, Miles of Possibilities Conference Trip are now avaialable in the Photos tab. Very sad that the 2020 MOP has been cancelled du to COVID19. We will miss seeing all our Easern Route 66 friends. Hopefully 2021 will be a better year.

Missing the Road - September 15, 2020

Hello to all our friends on Route 66:

With the US Border closed between Canada and the US we have been unable to do any US road trips this year. We very much miss travelling and visiting our friends (family) on Route 66. We hope everyone and their families are safe and healthy on the Route. Lets all hope for a COVID vaccine to come quickly and allow everyone to resume travelling. 

Hope to see you all soon. Stay Safe!

Preservation Grants for Route 66

Dear Friends of Route 66,

As you are aware, the National Park Service Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program will not be offering a grant program in 2020. However, I wanted to make you aware of other funding opportunities through the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s preservation grant programs. As you are likely aware, the National Trust has designated Route 66 as one of their National Treasures, and is a great source of financial assistance for historic sites on Route 66.

In addition to general grants, the National Trust has dedicated grant funds for several Route 66 states including California, New Mexico, Texas, Kansas and Missouri, as well as dedicated funds for Modernism and for preservation efforts for American Indian nations in both Arizona and New Mexico.  Grants are generally $2,500 to $5,000, require a 1:1 match (cash, in-kind or staff time), and are available for planning, education or outreach related projects only. Applicants must be a public agency, 501(c)(3), or other nonprofit entity. Find out more about the guidelines and eligibility for the upcoming October 1st deadline (the next deadline will be February 1, 2021), and/or contact grants@savingplaces.org

African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund Grants are also available through the National Trust. These competitive grants range from $50,000-150,000 and support projects in four different areas including Capital Projects, Organizational Capacity Building, Project Planning, and Programming and Interpretation. Matching funds are helpful, but not required. The next deadline for grant applications is in January, 2021. For additional information visit African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund Grants and/or contact grants@savingplaces.org.
