Grants and Funding
There are several available opportunities for financing historic preservation projects. Sources range from tax breaks and loans, to small and large grants. At this time the Department of Archaeology & Historic Preservation does not offer any specific grants to private property owners. However, the office does administer the Federal Rehabilitation Investment Tax Credit which can help offset the costs of historic rehabilitation to private, income producing properties. There are a number of private foundations which offer grants to historic preservation projects. See your local library for additional information about private foundations.
