What grants are available for rehabilitation historic buildings?

Unfortunately, funding for bricks and mortar is often the hardest to find. But there are a few resources available.


Preservation NC awards one Stedman Incentive Grant annually to a nonprofit organization. Applications for 2014 will be available in the spring. Check PreservationNC.org for updates.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation also has a few small grant programs and a helpful resource page: http://www.preservationnation.org/resources/find-funding/nonprofit-public-funding.html

The NC Center for Nonprofits is another good resource for finding grants: www.ncnonprofits.org

The Marion Stedman Covington Foundation also awards grants for rehabiltation to federally tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations. Visit their website for more information: http://www.mscovingtonfoundation.org/guidelines.php
