Since 1993, Preserve New York has provided support for historic structure reports, cultural landscape reports and cultural resource surveys. In 2016, the program will also offer grants for building condition reports. Preserve New York grants are likely to range between $3,000 and $15,000. The League launched the Technical Assistance Grant (TAG) program in 2012 to support projects that preserve New York State's cultural and historic resources. These professional studies include: building conditions surveys, engineering/structural analyses, feasibility/reuse studies and specialized building conservation studies. Preparation of architectural plans and specifications are not eligible. TAG funding will not exceed $3,000 and the total cost of the applicant's project may not exceed $3,500. Each applicant must provide $500 toward the total project cost.

A total of $265,128 is available in 2016. This includes $255,128 in funding from NYSCA and $10,000 from the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor for the TAG program. The League will disburse this amount over
two grant rounds, Preserve New York and TAG in the spring, and an additional TAG funding round in the fall. The application deadline for Spring TAG and 2016 Preserve New York is Monday, April 11. Guidelines for grants are posted on the League's website at Prospective applicants must discuss proposed projects with Preservation League staff before receiving an application.
