CHEYENNE – Owners of historical, commercial buildings located in traditional downtown districts can submit a preapplication to determine eligibility for the Historic Architecture Assistance Fund.

Preapplications must be submitted by Feb. 1, and the final application is due March 15.

If awarded, an architect will be assigned to work with the applicant. Typical projects include a building assessment, structural analysis, analysis of building code and ADA requirements, and façade and signage schematic design.

The intent is to assist with the building owner’s first step in their preservation project. The Historic Architecture Assistance Fund does not provide funds for physical repairs, the purchase of building materials or work by contractors.

The fund is available through Wyoming Main Street, which is a program of the Wyoming Business Council, the state’s economic development agency. Wyoming Main Street assists its member communities with downtown revitalization efforts through technical assistance and grant funding.

Applications can be found at wyomingbusiness.org/content/applications.

For more information, call Linda Kiisk, historic preservation architect for the State Historic Preservation Office, at 307-777-7566.
