Individuals, non-profit associations and organizations, and private non-profit and public museums may apply for grant awards from the Historic Alexandria Preservation Fund. In order to apply for a grant, an applicant must be a member of Historic Alexandria Foundation. Projects eligible for consideration include, but are not limited to, the following:
Individual grants will be awarded at the discretion of Historic Alexandria Foundation, which administers the Fund, based on the nature, purpose, and merits of the project proposal. The typical grant award is up to $5,000, but larger awards have been bestowed to projects judged to be of high need or merit. Grant awards in some instances will be required to be matched by a similar amount of money raised from other sources. The amount and date of the award will be determined by HAF. Grantees will be notified by U.S. mail by an officer of the Fund.
Grant applications are judged yearly by a seven-member committee selected by HAF from its Board of Trustees and membership, the Director of the Office of Historic Alexandria, and at least one outside expert in historic preservation.
The deadline for receipt of applications is May 1 of each year. Formal presentation of the awards will be made at the Foundation’s Annual Meeting/Garden Party during June.
Depending on the size of the grant and projected length of the project, partial payments will be made on the basis of interim progress reports. A final report from the grantee concerning the use of the grant funds will be required within thirty (30) days after completion of the project. Interim and final reports will be presented at the Foundation's Annual Meeting.List of HAF Grant Recipients
