Community Landmark Resources
Getting Started With Your Old Building is a quick-start guide for community preservation projects. Whether you are new to preservation or a seasoned veteran, we hope the following questions and resources will help you better understand your project and work effectively to restore it for years of future use.
Everyone needs money, and almost every project will want to take advantage of available grants and funding opportunities.
The NH Preservation Alliance funds planning grants for building assessments or re-use studies.
This two-tiered grant program offers Mini Grants ($500) and Preservation Assessment Grants (up to $4,500). Mini grants are useful for smaller projects or for second opinions. They are typically not acceptable studies if your group is hoping to apply to LCHIP for more than $25,000. Condition assessments are for buildings with complex needs, or for work that is expected to cost more than $50,000. Condition assessments generally explore a building’s structural issues, outdated systems, issues of access, general conditions, and/or code compliance.
