Preservation Fund Grant Application 2019-fillable

Attention all nonprofit dance halls! Texas Dance Hall Preservation is pleased to announce that our Preservation Fund Grant applications are now available for Fall 2019. Click the link above to download the application as a PDF.

Please note that, as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization, TDHP can only make grants to other nonprofits with current tax-exempt status. We realize that other halls have needs too, and we are working on ways to help everyone. However, these grants require that applicants are tax-exempt 501(c) organizations.

Applications must be complete and submitted to TDHP no later than September 1, 2019. If you have questions, please contact us at

Thanks to Lone Star Beer for funding this round of grants through their 2018 Tabs and Caps for Texas campaign and their additional donation for Harvey recovery!
