We can help.

What is the Historic Property Matching Grant Program?

Through the Historic Property Matching Grant Program, Preservation Burlington refunds grantees up to 50% of the cost of historically appropriate exterior restorations, to a maximum award of $5,000. The purpose of the program is to encourage and aid owners of our city’s historically and architecturally significant homes to preserve and maintain the historic character of their residential exteriors.  

Purpose.

Funds.

Grant funding will be awarded after all program requirements are met and the project is completed on a timely basis. The number of grants to be awarded, and the amount of each, is within the sole discretion of the Board of Directors.

412 Fountain Place

Providing foundation support via helical steel piers at the outer corners of their home's original all-brick front porch to arrest the downslope slippage of the porch, which has begun to separate from the house. This remedial work will also prevent further mortar fractures in the porch - a significant defining feature of the c. 1940 residence.
