Texas Dance Hall Preservation offers seed grants (usually up to $2,500) to help dance halls make repairs or help pay for a building condition assessment by a qualified architect or structural engineer. Preservation Fund grants have helped hall owners fix damage to roofs, dance floors, and other critical items. Although the Preservation Fund grants may not pay for an entire project, a small grant can help kick off a larger fundraising campaign.

To qualify, the applicant must be a nonprofit organization with current 501(c) tax-exempt status per the IRS. Both 501(c)(3) and other 501(c) organizations are eligible, including fraternal organizations’ lodges, such as SPJST, Sons of Hermann, and Knights of Columbus. For other eligibility requirements, see the current application form (below).

Applications are considered twice a year at our Spring and Fall board meetings, with awards made shortly thereafter. The deadlines for submitting a completed application are March 1 and September 1.

Download the application below or contact us to have an application mailed to you.
