The City of Plano offers heritage preservation grants to local, nonprofit organizations that support heritage preservation, education and tourism in the community. Since 2004, over $13 million has been allocated to organizations promoting heritage programming and tourism, historic preservation advocacy and historic restoration projects within Plano.
A total of $800,000 was awarded during the 2022- 2023 fiscal year to the Plano Conservancy for Historic Preservation, Heritage Farmstead Museum, Texas Pool Foundation and for City of Plano 150th Birthday Celebrations. Plano's hotel/motel tax revenue is the source of these grant funds, so projects must support the hospitality industry in Plano.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2023-2024 grant season. The deadline to apply is Monday, May 1, 2023.
