Grants of $4,500 to Virginia and North Carolina individuals for exterior improvements and repairs to historic barns that were once used for tobacco curing or packing. The improvements must be culturally and architecturally appropriate to the original time period of the structure.

The barn must be located within Pittsylvania County, Virginia; Halifax County, Virginia or Caswell County, North Carolina.

Barns must be in need of repair but must also possess enough integrity so that any work undertaken can be completed in a quality manner within the cap per barn.

The program will utilize licensed, bonded, and insured contractors that are pre-approved by Preservation Virginia and JTI to undertake all barn repairs.

Grant requirements:

- Grants will be given for exterior improvements only (roof, foundation, logs or siding repair or replacement). Improvements must be authentic to the style and period of the structure and compatible with current historic preservation standards;

- Grant money used to perform repairs to the reference barn and obtained through the Tobacco Barns Mini-Grant Project must be reimbursed in full to PV if the property is sold within 24 months of the ending date of the barn repairs;

- Any materials obtained through the Tobacco Barns Mini-Grant Project must remain with the barn if it is transferred or sold within 24 months of the ending date of the barn repairs;

- No exterior alterations will be made to the barn located at the above address for 24 months after the repair work is completed. Exterior alterations include, but are not limited to, demolishing the barn, removing any parts of the barn’s exterior (logs, siding, foundation stones, roofing materials), creating new openings in the barn or building additional rooms on the barn;

- The Barn Owner agrees to maintain the area around the barn for a period of 24 months after the barn repairs are completed. Maintenance includes keeping the area around the barn clear of weeds, brush, undergrowth and trash.
