Tennessee Wars Commission accepting grant applications

2 days ago | | |
TENNESSEE WARS COMMISSION ACCEPTING GRANT APPLICATIONS NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Wars Commission has announced that they will begin accepting grant applications on Sept. 1, for the Tennessee Wars Commission Grant Fund (TWCGF). The Tennessee Wars Commission Grant Fund, which this year consists of $100,000, provides funding for the protection and interpretation of Tennessee’s historic military sites ranging from the French and Indian War through the American Civil War era. Last year the Tennessee Wars Commission awarded $115,610 to four successful applicants, for projects including interpretive signage and graphic displays, expanded living history programs, and for the purchase of replica Civil War-era artillery. Since 1994, this grant program has funded over one hundred different projects preserving, protecting, and interpreting the military heritage of Tennessee and Tennesseans. “The Wars Commission grant fund is an opportunity for Tennessee communities to enhance their war-related sites through the acquisition, preservation, interpretation, and archaeology, of sites and structures related to the various wars, furthering our collective knowledge of these historical sites and events,” said Wars Commission Program Director Nina Scall. While matching funding is not mandatory for the TWCGF, it is highly encouraged. The grant application is completely digital, streamlining the process and shortening processing times. Interested parties can visit to create an account and complete their grant application. Completed applications for the grant program must be submitted by Nov. 15.
