Grant Seeker Workshops | Facilities Grants

February 13, 2019

The Vermont Arts Council, the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, and the Preservation Trust of Vermont are partnering to host three workshops in March. Anyone interested in applying for a facilities grant through either the Cultural Facilities or Historic Preservation Grant programs is encouraged to attend one of the sessions. This is also an excellent opportunity to learn more about the Preservation Trust’s programs.

Grant Programs

Cultural Facilities Grants up to $30,000 are awarded to Vermont nonprofit organizations and municipalities to enhance, create, or expand the capacity of an existing building to provide cultural activities for the public. Projects such as wiring, heating, adding accessibility features, lighting, and stage improvements are eligible. This program is administered by the Vermont Arts Council. The application deadline is May 1, 2019.

Historic Preservation Grants up to $20,000 are awarded to Vermont nonprofit organizations and municipalities to repair and rehabilitate historic buildings. In order to qualify, a building must be at least fifty years old and listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. This program is administered by the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation. The anticipated deadline for applications is in the fall of 2019.

The Preservation Trust of Vermont is a nonprofit organization founded to assist communities and individuals in the ongoing effort to preserve and use Vermont’s rich collection of historic and architectural resources.

I bought a post Civil war carriage house which was brought from VCFA to my home and reassembled three years ago. It is now my studio gallery workshop. The Lois Crowley building is now on its footprint. The building is at 1618 Bunker Hill road in Hardwick. It took me two years to finish. Is this relative to these restoration lectures . I thought of attending the one in Waterbury ? Every little bit of information helps.

Hi Nancy,

Thanks for checking in. I've sent your question to the program manager. I'm sure she'll be in touch with you.
