CASPER — The Alliance for Historic Wyoming (AHW) is the recipient of a grant from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund that will help historic property owners answer the critical question, “What should I do with this historic building?”
The monies received for the Historic Architecture Assistance Fund (HAAF) connect historic preservation architects and engineers with historic building owners to address rehabilitation issues with a plan that both honors the building’s past and meets the owner’s future needs.
HAAF grants are available to all owners of historic buildings, including private property owners, nonprofit corporations and government agencies. The grants are given for historic buildings (over 50 years of age) in need of rehabilitation, whose owners intend to maintain or restore the historic integrity of the property. Historic properties that have benefited from this program include Natrona County High School in Casper, the Sheridan Fairgrounds in Sheridan and the Chimney Stabilization Project at the Heart Mountain Internment Camp in Powell.
This program is offered by AHW in partnership with Wyoming Main Street and the Wyoming State Historic Preservation Office, and is made possible by a grant from the Wyoming Cultural Trust.
AHW is Wyoming’s only active statewide historic preservation nonprofit. AHW is dedicated to protecting our historic and cultural resources in both the built and natural environments. For additional information about HAAF grant funding visit www.historicwyoming.org or call (307) 333-3508.
