The Preservation Trust of Vermont is pleased to share the recipients of the Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grants to activate and reuse historic structures. The Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grants, named for PTV’s founding President, Paul Bruhn, was created in partnership with Senator Leahy and the National Park Service to help rural communities throughout the country.
Senator Leahy has been a longtime champion of village revitalization. “The projects that have been funded through the Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grants Program represent an incredible opportunity for our village centers, and the Preservation Trust has the expertise to support these groups as they move forward. The funded projects will enhance the vibrancy of rural Vermont by bringing people together, increasing economic activity, and helping communities to be more resilient,” said Leahy.
Grants will be used for structural repairs, interior renovations, roof replacement, and window and facade restoration. All projects are located in towns with fewer than 7500 people. Each of these projects will preserve and reuse historic gathering spaces, generate economic and civic vitality, and enrich the lives of community members.
The Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grant Program is administered by the National Park Service, Department of the Interior.
