Non-Profit Financial Assistance for Historic Preservation Projects
Numerous non-profit organizations of national, State, or local scope support historic preservation, focusing either holistically on the subject or on special interest issues.
Principal among the nationwide non-profits, the National Trust for Historic Preservation offers several grant and loan programs with broad applicability. To learn more, visit www.preservationnation.org/resources/find-funding/.
Statewide or local preservation non-profits sometimes run funding programs, including revolving loan programs. For contact information on statewide preservation non-profits, access the Statewide Groups information at www.preservationnation.org/about-us/partners/statewide-local-partners/contacts.html.
Non-profits which assist in cultural, arts, and heritage development can also be sources of preservation funding. For example, recent Getty Foundation grants are supporting the preservation of properties as diverse as Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and an ancient Native Hawaiian sacred site, Hale O Pi'ilani. One source with information on these organizations is www.preservenet.cornell.edu/econ.html.
