Certified Local Government Subgrant Application Evaluation Criteria | Wisconsin Historical Society

State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) staff use the criteria explained on this page to review and rate CLG subgrant applications. Instructions and forms for completing the application can be found here. Staff are available to review project ideas and draft applications as schedules allow, in the order they are received, until the application deadline. 

Grant proposals must first meet the minimum requirements of the Subgrant Criteria to be considered. Applications that meet the minimum requirements are then scored by reviewers in seven categories. Reviewers assign scores based on the quality of the information provided for each catergory: zero points for a poor response, mid-point for average, and maximum points for a comprehensive response. The reviewers' scores are averaged to determine the application's final score. All applications are then ranked by score to determine which projects will be receive subgrant funding:

HIGH SCORE: Projects to be awarded up to the amount of Historic Preservation Fund subgrant funding available.
MEDIUM SCORE: Projects that would be appropriate to fund if remaining subgrant funding is available after all high score projects have been fully funded.  
LOW SCORE: Project as submitted is not recommended for funding because it did not meet the application criteria.
