A CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION.
Preservation Georgetown announces the creation of the Preservation Grant Program to assist with costs of preserving historic structures in the greater Georgetown area. Eligible structures will be those listed in the City of Georgetown’s 2007 Historic Resource Survey, as amended.
“For 30 plus years, PG has promoted interest in Georgetown’s heritage – its historic buildings and sites and the people associated with them -- through advocacy, educational programs, home tours, publications and, of course, assisting with the relocation and operation of the Grace Heritage Center,” says PG President Susan Firth. “Now it is time to move to a new level of support, gathering resources needed to help preserve the structural integrity of historical and architectural treasures that make our community unique.”
PG has established a Preservation Fund to be used exclusively for preservation efforts. A fundraising campaign has begun that will supplement monies from ongoing PG activities such as Grace Heritage Center rentals and the annual Holiday Home Tour in historic Georgetown. The Preservation Fund will benefit the community with future preservation activities approved by the PG Board of Directors.
Grant Program Applications will be accepted from January 5 until 4:30 pm CST February 16, 2017. Awards will be announced in April.
