Frequently Asked Questions

Can I apply for a marker commemorating my home or commercial business?

Our grants are open to all municipalities, charitable 501(c)(3) organizations and nonprofit academic institutions in the United States. The applying agency must fall into one of these categories. Often, municipal historians or local historical organizations (or related nonprofits) will apply for a marker on behalf of the property owner.

Please note that we do not award National Register marker grants for private residences or commercial properties.
