Montana State Historic Preservation Office

Revitalizing Montana’s Rural Heritage

Revitalizing Montana’s Rural Heritage (RMRH), through the Montana State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), is a reimbursement grant available to rural property owners (properties in communities under 50,000 population as defined by the US Census Bureau) for the rehabilitation and repair of historic properties. RMRH’s goal is to not only preserve significant cultural resources, but also foster economic development in Montana’s rural communities. Grants are for “bricks and mortar” preservation projects. SHPO obtains these funds from the National Park Service through a competitive process. The availability of funds year-to-year is subject to change.
