What Resources are there for Financing the Restoration of an Old House?Updated 2/17/2008
It can be difficult to find funds for your restoration project. As always, your bank, your family, or your friends are the tried and true sources of money for renovating an old house. Sometimes specific funds for preserving an old house are available at the local, state, or national level. .
Not every state offers the same financial assistance for historic home owners, so it is a good idea to contact all of the following agencies in your state for information on their grants and loans: Historic Development Commission, Department of Planning and Economic Development, Housing and Redevelopment, and State Historic Preservation Office.
