The Historic Religious Properties Grant Program of our organization has awarded a total of $120,000 in matching grants to 16 congregations in Allegheny County as part of its 2023 funding cycle.
The monies, which will leverage about $500,000 raised by the congregations, will be used to fund restoration, renovation, and maintenance projects on the historic structures utilized by religious organizations. The work ranges from masonry restoration to roof repairs, and renovation of wooden doors, and stained-glass windows, among other needs.

Our organization is the only nonprofit organization in Allegheny County offering a continuing program of financial and technical assistance to historic religious property owners. We have awarded more than 290 such grants totaling more than $1.5 million, and provided more than 60 technical assistance consultations, since the program’s inception in 1997.
Our effort is made possible through individual donations, private foundations, and our Donor Advised Funds.
