Preservation Texas, in conjunction with the Texas Historical Commission, created the Texas Rural African-American Heritage Grants to provide funding directly to the most endangered historic places in our state: rural African-American historic buildings. The program is an outgrowth of our Most Endangered Places list, established in 2004, that provides public awareness about endangered buildings across Texas but did not provide funding. Per the requirements of the National Park Service, all eligible buildings must be located in a rural community (defined as having a population under 50,000) and listed on the National Register of Historic Places prior to the completion of the project.
