Grant applications for the Tennessee Wars Commission Fund and the Tennessee Civil War Sites Preservation Fund grant programs are now being accepted.

The Tennessee Wars Commission grants provide funding to protect and interpret Tennessee’s historic military sites ranging from the French and Indian War through the American Civil War era.

The Tennessee Civil Wars Sites Preservation Fund is a key source of matching funding for the preservation of properties associated with the 38 most significant Civil War sites in Tennessee. Additionally, grants can assist in funding the acquisition and protection of Underground Railroad sites eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, or eligible for designation as a National Historic Landmark.

Completed applications for either grant program must be submitted by Dec. 1. For applications, call Tennessee Wars Commission Program Director Timothy Hyder at 615-770-1095.
