HistoricFunding.com was created by the team that manages the comprehensive resource for historic preservation and cultural resource management, PreservationDirectory.com.
Launched in Spokane, WA in 1999, based in Portland, OR from 2002-2018, and now located in Rochester, NY, PreservationDirectory.com provides a wide-array of resources for those looking to restore their home or commercial building; add their property to the National Register of Historic Places; find employment in the historic and cultural resources fields; find and work with their local historical society, State Historic Preservation Office, or downtown and main street program; read about local and national news of interest to the preservation community; find a great lecture, conference or historic tour; and so much more.
The number one asked question, received on a daily basis, though, is “how do I find funding for my project?”. While PreservationDirectory.com does provide basic information about grants, tax incentives and other funding sources, we wanted to create the most comprehensive funding resource for historic preservation, cultural resource management, and the arts.
This is why we created HistoricFunding.com.
The massive database of local (city and county-wide), Statewide and Nationally-available programs is the most complete resource of its kind online. There are over 7,500 funding programs (grants, loans, tax incentives, preservation easements, rebates, awards and Certified Local Government funds) and educational/job training programs (scholarships, fellowships / internships, apprenticeships, and residencies) listed in the HistoricFunding.com database.
The database covers programs of interest to a wide variety of disciplines, including historic preservation and restoration; architecture and design; cultural resources (archeology, museums, cultural landscapes and objects), libraries and archives, downtown and main street restoration, the arts, and the humanities.
