Fun fact: In 2014, the National Trust for Historic Preservation awarded just over $1 million to nearly 200 projects across the country through its small grant program.

- In Texas, Preservation Dallas received a grant to create a mobile app of The Pegasus Urban Trail. The trail, developed by local volunteer group the Urban Armadillos, takes visitors through areas of downtown Dallas and includes information on some of the city's most iconic buildings and places.
- In South Carolina, the Historic Charleston Foundation used a grant to create a three dimensional photo-realistic digital rendering of the double parlors at the Aiken-Rhett House.
