Applications available for Preservation Grant Fund


Applications are now available for our next round of funding. Launched in September, 2012, The Landmark Society’s Preservation Grant Fund program offers funds for preliminary design and planning studies to help make positive improvements to at-risk buildings. The program was initially funded through a bequest from Elizabeth (Libby) Stewart. Libby was a longtime Landmark Society staff member who was dedicated to the revitalization of neighborhoods and historic structures.

The Preservation Grant Fund provides initial “start-up” funding to assist in saving historic resources. The grant will not pay for any “bricks and mortar” work. Applications are due October 21st. Potential applicants must contact Caitlin Meives to discuss their project and obtain an application. >>Visit our website to learn more.
