Historic Preservation Grant Program

The Historic Preservation Grant Program is a federally funded program through New York City's Community Development Block Grant that provides grants for homeowners and non-profits to restore severely deteriorated facades.  Grants range from $5000 to $25000 and pay for exterior repairs, primarily on the street façade.  Eligible work may include, but is not limited to: masonry rebuilding and repointing, repair and replacement of windows and front doors, and cornice restoration.

To qualify for a grant, the building must be a designated or proposed individual New York City landmark, or be listed or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. 
For residential buildings, owners or tenants must meet the federal limits for household income. 
For non-profits, the organization must be a charitable, scientific, literary, educational, or other entity organized under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and must own or hold a long-term lease on the designated property.  Federal regulations restrict the use of grant funds for buildings used for government or religious purposes.

Grant applications are reviewed periodically by the Program Board.  In making a determination about a request for a grant, the Board considers the following factors, among others:

  • The architectural or historical importance of the structure;
  • The building condition and the significance of the repairs;
  • The applicant’s financial resources;
  • The effect the grant will have on improving the building and/or the district.

Preference is given to owners who use their own funds along with the grant to restore the façade of their building.  For additional information, please click on the Homeowner or Non-Profit Grant Application or Fact Sheet.
