Grants to Wyoming individual property owners, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies for consultations to preserve historic buildings. Applicants must submit a letter of intent at least 30 days prior to the deadline. This program connects individual and corporate property owners with historic preservation architects and engineers. Consultations will result in a plan to address rehabilitation issues with a plan that both honors the building’s past and meets the owner’s future needs.
Historic Architecture Assistance Fund grants are intended to answer the critical first questions that arise when considering a project: is it feasible, what needs to be done, what steps should be taken, approximately what will it cost? Services might include a building assessment, structural analysis, analysis of building code and ADA requirements, feasibility study for reuse or recommendations for rehabilitation of exterior features.
Grants are for planning only (not construction) and the fund is not intended to pay for all architectural and engineering costs associated with a project. Grants cannot be used for remodeling projects that would change the character of the historic building.
-All properties will be treated as historic, which means eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, and therefore proposed work will meet the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.
-All applications must be completed and signed by the property owner or a representative of a board or similar group that owns and manages the property.
-All final reports will be available upon request as a means to share information about the best approach to historic property rehabilitation projects. Applicants agree to this potential sharing of information about their property when they submit an application.
The Architectural Assistance Fund is best used to address conditions and materials that provide challenges for rehabilitation projects, such as potentially compromised structural systems, exterior wall materials, windows, ADA and code compliance, and the loss of historic components.
If this application is awarded, the recipient will be expected to work with the architect and Wyoming Main Street and/or Alliance for Historic Wyoming to promote the HAAF Program. This may include publication of photography, research and writing, and any report materials generated by the Historic Architecture Assistance Fund.
