2019 Grants to Historic Property Redevelopment Programs

Posted February 26th, 2019 by Gillian Lang and filed in News & Announcements

At their quarterly meeting, the trustees of the 1772 Foundation awarded Historic Property Redevelopment Program (HPRP) grants totaling $1,176,000.00 to the 21 organizations listed below.

Individual grants ranged in amount from $5,000 to $182,000. The smallest for $5,000 was given to Preservation Utah for the development of a feasibility study, and the largest was given to the Historic Macon Foundation to fund a pilot community asset mapping program, similar to that undertaken by the Madison-Morgan Conservancy. The Madison-Morgan Conservancy received $125,000, the second installment of funding towards their blended land conservation and historic preservation revolving fund.

Close to the foundation’s Providence offices, several local, New England organizations received grants. Including the Providence Revolving Fund in Providence, Rhode Island, who received $60,000, and the Waterfront Historic Area League (WHALE) in New Bedford, Massachusetts, who received $100,000.

This year, five grants were awarded to organizations seeking funding to conduct feasibility studies or business plans, with the hope of operating revolving funds in the near future. We wish all grantees the best success!
