Conservation Society still accepting grant applications

This hit brethren blog Nest Fest a couple of weeks ago. (And with a much punchier hook, I might add.) Since there’s still plenty of time, I thought I’d give it a mention here.

The San Antonio Conservation Society is accepting grant applications for the rehabilitation or restoration of at least 50-year-old structures in S.A. The average grant is $5,000. Projects must not already be underway yet or completed. There’s a whole list of Grant Program Homes stipulations, and you can view them and the application here, or pick one up at the Conservation Society, 107 King William St.

The deadline is 4:30 p.m. Sept. 30.

The Conservation Society has been awarding historic preservation grants since 1990, according to a press release. Since 2000, the society has awarded $1.8 million to individuals or organizations who preserve residential or commercial structures, or who conduct educational programs. Or, as business reporter extraordinaire Jennifer Hiller put it, “where that NIOSA beer money goes.”
