Baltimore City Historic Preservation Fund Grants Awarded
Preservation Maryland, in partnership with the Maryland Historical Trust, Baltimore Heritage, and the Baltimore City Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation, are proud announce the first round of grant awards from the Baltimore City Historic Preservation Fund.
The goal of the Baltimore Preservation Fund, supported by the Baltimore Community Foundation, is to provide direct assistance for capital and non-capital activities that advance efforts to preserve historically significant properties in Baltimore City. The projects selected represent a wide variety of building types and uses. In addition to looking at historic significance, reviewers also sought projects that are important to neighborhood identity and contribute to the revitalization of communities.
In this first round, nine projects totaling $70,000 in grant awards were selected from a highly competitive field of nearly forty applicants.
Preservation Maryland Executive Director Nicholas Redding explained, “We are proud to administer and support this important new program. The grants funded this round each underscore the real power of preservation to be a positive force for community revitalization.”
