The city of Phoenix Historic Preservation Office is accepting new applications for its Exterior Rehabilitation Grant Program. The program provides funding for repair and restoration work on historic homes. Owners of properties located in city-designated historic districts or individually listed on the city’s historic property register are eligible to apply.
The program reimburses owners on a 50-50 matching basis for pre-approved work with grant funding between $5,000 and $10,000 per project. In exchange for receiving financial assistance, the property owner agrees to sell the city a conservation easement to protect the historic character of the property’s exteriors.
A successful project is one that retains and preserves as much of the original historic fabric as possible while maintaining the historic, character-defining architectural elements of the home. Eligible projects include items such as foundation repair, roofing repair or replacement, masonry repointing, stucco repair, window and door repair and removal of non-historic additions.
Applications will be accepted up until 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8. Application materials are available online at https://www.phoenix.gov/pddsite/Pages/historicincentiveshprehab.aspx. For questions, contact Grant Manager Kevin Weight at 602-261-8699.
