Application & Reports

Texas Historical Foundation grants provide seed money to help organizations save their own pieces of the state’s past. Proposals for the following types of projects are considered quarterly:

  • Historic property restoration
  • Events promoting state history to the general public
  • Preservation of artifacts, archival materials, or legal documents
  • Texas history curriculum in classrooms
  • Publications and scholarly research in Texas history
  • Archeology
  • Preservation of the arts 

Grant Forms

All areas of the application, including budget information, must be completed, and requested supporting documentation is required in order to be considered for a THF grant. 

Proposals should be sent via pdf to grants@texashistoricalfoundation.org before the quarterly deadlines listed below. Please be aware that owing to a condensed grant cycle, Spring 2023 applicants are required to use the most current version of the application form, available for download below. Forms downloaded prior to October of 2022 will not be accepted during this grant cycle. 

Within ten business days after grant decisions are made, all applicants will receive a letter announcing whether their proposal was accepted or denied. See the FAQ page for more information about the application process. 


Recipients must submit a follow-up report, signed by an organizational representative, with accompanying documentation upon completion of the funded project or within ONE YEAR of the grant disbursement.

If your project timeline has extended and you will not meet the completion date projected in your original proposal, please notify THF staff and include this information in your follow-up report. Once the project has concluded, a follow-up report should be sent within 60 days to notify THF of completion.
