WATERFORD, NY – The Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor has launched the Mohawk Valley Historic Revitalization Grant Program to support capital improvements for historic properties in rural communities within the Mohawk Valley in Herkimer and Montgomery counties. Funding is available to private, public, and nonprofit owners of National Register listed historic properties and properties that contribute to a listed historic district.

Up to a total of $712,000 is available for grant awards. Interested parties may apply for between $50,000 and $100,000. A 25% cash match of the total project cost is required. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis through October 31, 2024.

“We are excited to offer funding for brick-and-mortar projects that preserve historic structures. These types of grants can have far reaching impacts, including preserving the historic character of buildings and streetscapes, stabilizing or increasing property values, and contributing to heritage tourism and economic development,” said Bob Radliff, Executive Director, Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor.

The Mohawk Valley Historic Revitalization Grant Program is supported in part by the Historic Preservation Fund administered by the National Park Service, Department of the Interior.

Interested applicants are invited to attend an online information session on Thursday, May 23, 2024 at 10am and the New York State Historic Preservation Office Preservation Standards Workshop on Thursday, August 15, 2024. For details, Q&A and workshop registration, and online application, visit:
