Historic Buildings Receive Funding for Restoration
Governor Douglas recently announced the release of $180,000 in grant funding to be used for the restoration of historic buildings throughout the state. The program, administered through the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, will provide matching grants of up to $15,000 to owners for improvements of their historic buildings. Among the criteria for receiving a grant, which will be reviewed by volunteers appointed by Governor Douglas, is that the building is listed or eligible for listing on the National Register for Historic Places. Requests will be prioritized based on those buildings in most need of repair. More information about the program, along with information about projects that have already received funding, can be found at www.vermont.gov.
