Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for projects that protect New England’s railway history. Funding is intended for projects addressing the protection of historic railroad structures, equipment, artifacts, and information related to New England railroads. Applications may be submitted for The H. Albert Webb Memorial Railroad Preservation Award and the Mass Bay RRE Railroad Preservation Fund Grant. Only one Award or Grant will be made to any given project.

The H. Albert Webb Memorial Railroad Preservation Award: The purpose of this award is to assist in the preservation of New England railroad history. The Award grant may fund either an entire preservation project or the completion of a specific, measurable portion of a larger preservation project. Among other considerations, projects will be evaluated on the basis of their historical significance and the ability of the sponsor to fund and complete the entire preservation project, not just that portion to be funded by the Award grant.

The Mass Bay RRE Railroad Preservation Fund Grant: These grants support worthy projects to preserve historically significant railroad equipment, structures, information or artifacts in New England. Projects will be evaluated on the basis of their historical significance and the ability of the sponsor to fund and complete the entire preservation project, not just that portion to be funded by the Mass Bay RRE grant.
