Morgan, Check the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Also, do a Google search on "(your state here) historic preservation." The problem with grants of this type is that you have to show that your site is historically significant from a national standpoint, and that is not easy for most small sites - unless someone famous in history is buried there, you may not have much luck. Depending on the size of the cemetery and what needs to be done, especially if it's mostly lawn and landscaping work, this might be a good project for a local club, like the Lion's Club, Shriner's, etc. Check your town's phone book and start calling around. Also call nearby high schools and colleges to see if they have a student volunteer group who might be interested in taking on part of the work as a project. Cindy
