Grants of up to $5,000 to Reno, Nevada property owners to rehabilitate historical structures in a way that is still consistent with their original architectural styles. Priority will be given to projects that complement and enhance original historical neighborhood character and the original architectural style of the structure.

Please note the following funding guidelines:

- Structures must be located within Reno city limits, be at least 50 years old, or of historical and/or architectural significance. Applicants must be Nevada residents.

- Grants will be given for exterior improvements only (e.g., front door, front windows, porch details, etc.). Grants are not intended for landscaping projects. Exceptions may be made, on a case by case judgment by the awarding jury, if the landscaping improvement is heirloom and appropriate to the original time frame of the building or has a direct impact on the preservation of the structure.

- Improvements must be authentic to the style of the structure. For example, a new door or window for a Craftsman Bungalow needs to be of Craftsman Bungalow style. Vinyl products are not historically authentic. The NPF grant will not fund vinyl windows. Purchase of or repair of historically appropriate wood or metal framed windows will be funded.
