The County Courthouse Restoration Grant is an annual grant that has been in existence since 1988. It is funded primarily by an annual grant to the AHPP by the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council (ANCRC) using Real Estate Transfer Tax (RETT) funds. The purpose of the County Courthouse Restoration Grant program is to encourage and promote the preservation and continued use of Arkansas's historic courthouses by providing financial assistance for restoration, selected maintenance and accessibility projects.
This year, $1,531,520 in grant funding was given out to 25 worthy recipients who completed applications for consideration.
