Six Communities Receive Support from Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grants

The Preservation Trust of Vermont is pleased to announce the recipients of the Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grants to activate and reuse historic structures. A total of $525,00 has been awarded to six rural community projects in Arlington, Chelsea, Derby Line, Ferrisburgh, Lyndon, and South Hero. The grants range from $50,000 to $100,000 and will be used for restoration and repairs of windows, facades, foundations, interior spaces and roofs.

“The Preservation Trust of Vermont, in partnership with the National Parks Service, is excited to support projects that will help preserve and revitalize Vermont’s rural communities,” said Ben Doyle, PTV President. “We congratulate the community champions who are leading this work and thank the congressional delegation, Senator Leahy in particular, for his work in establishing this important national program.”

The Bruhn Revitalization Grant program supports the preservation and restoration of buildings and community gathering spaces of economic and social significance in rural communities with fewer than 7500 residents. 

Projects supported by the Bruhn Historic Revitalization grants include:

Each of these projects will preserve and reuse historic gathering spaces, generate economic and civic vitality, and enrich the lives of community members. 

The Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grant Program is administered by the National Park Service, Department of the Interior. Congress appropriates funding for the program through the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF). The HPF uses revenue from federal oil leases on the Outer Continental Shelf, providing assistance for a broad range of preservation projects without expending tax dollars.
