In 1990, we began our community grants program for the restoration or rehabilitation of residential and commercial historic structures. We added grants for educational projects relating to historic preservation in the early 1990s. From 2000 through 2016, the Society’s grant programs have awarded more than $2.3 million dollars to individuals and organizations.
We offer competitive grants once a year for the restoration or rehabilitation of residential or commercial historic structures built before 1930. We will begin accepting 2018 grant applications starting Wednesday, August 1st and ending Friday, September 28th at 4:00 pm. Notification of award status will be sent within the first two weeks of December.
