Historic Architectural Assistance Fund pre-app due September 1, 2020

The Historic Architecture Assistance Fund provides the service of architects to the owners of historic commercial buildings located in the traditional downtown district to address issues involved with the rehabilitation and use of such properties. The fund cannot support the entire architectural or engineering services needed for a complete rehabilitation project. Typical projects that can be funded include a building assessment, structural analysis, analysis of building code and ADA requirements, and fa├žade and signage schematic design. Funds are not available for physical repairs, the purchase of building materials, or work by contractors. Architectural assistance is available to a variety of property owners. The fund is meant to support private and not-for-profit property owners who are not eligible for grant programs. However, government entities can also apply for the funds.
