Historic Preservation Grants

Each year, we strive to give grants to individuals, nonprofits and community organizations to help defray some of the expenses associated with historic preservation efforts.

Preservation Alliance usually awards our grants at our annual meeting, normally held in late June. Due to the health crisis, we may have to delay grant funding and dispersal until the summer or early fall. We will keep you updated on any date changes. Thank you for your understanding. You have one year to complete your project.

Help Us Save More Buildings

We are focusing on growing our decade-old Grant Fund, allowing us to increase the number of buildings we can help preserve and restore. In addition to our traditional grants to non-profits, our organization is dedicated to help preserve the historic owner-occupied homes of those with limited funds.  We your help, we can assist community members to stay in their homes, with assistance such as roof and window repairs; thereby helping them, and keeping our historic neighborhoods intact.
