Preserving Affordable Housing in New Orleans Historic Districts
The Preservation Resource Center’s Revival Grants program is designed to help both low-to moderate-income homeowners and to preserve the historic architecture and culture of our city’s oldest neighborhoods.
HOW IT WORKS:
The Preservation Resource Center will provide funding to eligible homes that have been cited for violations by the New Orleans Historic District Landmarks Commission (HDLC). The grants only cover minor repairs to the exterior of each property.
Examples of eligible repairs:
- Replacing inappropriate materials used for doors, windows, shutters, fences, etc.
- Repairing or replacing damaged gutters, siding, trim work
- Other violations to HDLC guidelines
This program assists low-to-moderate-income homeowners who live in the New Orleans Historic District Landmarks Commission, Tremé District. By helping these homeowners to repair and maintain their homes, they will be able to remain in their houses and pass their property on to future generations. The Preservation Resource Center will evaluate homeowners by need and scope of work.
- Must be a low-to moderate-income household as determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
- Must reside in the Tremé Local Historic District. Homeowners can verify if they are located within the Tremé HDLC boundaries using property.nola.gov.
- Must be a homeowner and only own one property.
