WWI Monument Preservation Grant Program

The Landmarks Illinois WWI Monument Preservation Grant Program provides funding to WWI outdoor monuments and memorials in Illinois in need of restoration to recover their dedication-era quality and appearance. The grant program was launched in March 2017, shortly before the 100th anniversary of the United State’s entry into WWI on April 6, 2017. This program is made possible with generous support from the Pritzker Military Foundation.
