How We Help

Our Barn Grant Program offers small planning grants to help with condition assessments for historic barns.

These grants offset the cost of hiring a qualified contractor to evaluate the condition of an historic barn and make recommendations for its care.

The consultant will prepare a report that prioritizes repairs and gives rough cost estimates. The condition assessments cost $500, of which a grant from the Preservation Trust pays $250.

Getting Started

Barn Grants have a rolling deadline. Applications are initiated by contacting our Field Service Representatives and setting up a site visit. Please be prepared to describe what you know is wrong with your building and any concerns you have at that time.

Additional Funding for Barns

The Vermont Division for Historic Preservation is able to award competitive 50/50 matching grants of up to $15,000 for the repair of historic agricultural buildings. In order to qualify, the buildings must be at least 50 years old and either listed in, or eligible to be listed in, the National Register of Historic Places.
