The Historic Harrisburg Association has announced grant opportunities to organizations which are exploring or conducting projects that promote and accomplish the preservation of historic buildings, neighborhoods, and landmarks. The grants are distributed by Historic Harrisburg’s Community Historic Preservation Fund. The Historic Harrisburg Association established the Community Historic Preservation Fund (CHPF) in 1996 as a permanent endowment to be used for preserving and restoring historic structures, and working to sustain vital projects in the City of Harrisburg. Through the CHPF, Historic Harrisburg has historically awarded matching cash grants for worthy preservation projects.
The program has been retooled to focus on projects within the public realm including monuments, parks, churches, public access spaces, and streetscapes. Standard historic preservation projects of buildings also qualify.“
We are excited to announce and re-launch the Community Historic Preservation Fund Grant Program this year, especially at a time when City organizations are looking to do more with less,” said Executive Director John Campbell.
