The Maine Community Foundation seeks grant proposals to its Belvedere Historic Preservation and Energy Efficiency Grant Program. The program invests in the preservation, restoration and retrofitting of historic buildings in Maine.

Grant awards of up to $20,000 are available for the preservation and reuse of historic buildings that serve as civic, cultural, or economic hubs for Maine communities. All proposed projects must be for historic buildings listed or declared eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, or be contributing buildings within a federally designated historic district. The building must be owned by an eligible nonprofit.

The deadline for grant applications is June 1. Application and a list of recent grants are available online at Applicants are encouraged to read eligibility and grant guidelines. Questions should be directed to Senior Program Officer Maggie Drummond-Bahl at [email protected] or 207-412-0839.

In 2020, The Belvedere Fund awarded more than $345,000 to 25 different projects in all regions of the state.
