Statement of Purpose:
The Micro Grant Program was created to further PHW’s mission statement “to participate in the preservation, restoration, rehabilitation, and ownership of sites, buildings, structures, and objects significant to the cultural, social, political, economic, and architectural history of the Winchester, Virginia area.”
The Micro Grant Program is intended to fill a financial gap in support for homeowners to maintain their historic residences. The grant is intended as a one-time payment to subsidize repairs, maintenance, or restoration of missing historic features on the exteriors of buildings.
PHW plans to offer grant cycles twice a year, with deadlines on January 31 and May 31. Available funds will vary year to year.
