Grant funding available for historic preservation with May 25 deadline

The City of Flagstaff has seven $10,000 matching grants available for historic property owners under its Historic Façades and Signs Grant program. The grants are available for both privately owned residential and commercial properties. Properties must be at least 50 years old and meet the criteria to be eligible for historic preservation. Funding is available on a 50/50-match basis, with up to $10,000 per property. Applications must be received by May 25.

 

The grant funding can be used to preserve historic façades or to reverse previous modifications to the property’s original historic appearance. The funding can also be used for the preservation and restoration of historic signs that retain enough of their original components and appearance to be restored.  

 

Applications for the Historic Façades and Signs Grant program are reviewed by the City’s Heritage Preservation Commission and decisions are made based on the lasting community benefit of the project, the project’s visual accessibility to the public, and the U.S. Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for (historic) Rehabilitation. Assistance is provided to the Commission by the Flagstaff Heritage Preservation Officer.
