TLTA renews commitment to courthouses

AUSTIN — The Texas Land Title Association (TLTA) will continue its support of Texas’ historic county courthouses for the fourth year through a public/ private partnership with the Texas Historical Commission (THC).

This collaboration — the only one of its kind in the United States — supports the highly successful Texas Courthouse Stewardship Workshop program.

Grant money prov ided by TLTA helps to provide training and technical assistance to maintain historic county courthouses restored through the THC’s award-winning Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program.

Funds provided by TLTA also support Courthouse Stewardship Awards, recognizing counties that have shown exemplary care and commitment to their newly restored historic county courthouses.

Since 1999, the Texas Legislature has allocated $227 million and counties have provided local matches of more than $147 million to fully restore more than 40 of the state’s historic county courthouses.

In 2008, the Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program received national attention for its accomplishments with a Preserve America Presidential Award presented at the White House.

In 2009, TLTA was awarded the American Society of Association Executive’s Associations Advance America Award of Excellence for its partnership in the Texas Courthouse Stewardship Workshop program. The award recognizes associations that propel America forward through innovative projects in citizenship and community service.
